Only two points separate the leading five clubs in League 2 and we could go top of the table with victory over Berwick on Tuesday, depending on results elsewhere. Greig McDonald’s side are chasing a fourth straight home win after recent successes against Montrose, Albion Rovers and Queen’s Park in a game postponed from Saturday due to the Scottish Cup.
Team news: Defender Chris Smith remains out with a knee injury and is set to undergo minor surgery this week. Striker Sandy Cunningham is suspended after being sent off at Alloa and midfielder Mark Ferry is a doubt.
Season so far: Berwick started the season strongly but recently ended a run of seven league games without a win. Ian Little’s side have won just one of their six away games so far, against Albion Rovers in September. Berwick were beaten 3-1 by Dumbarton in the Scottish Cup on Saturday while we lost 3-2 at Alloa – only our second defeat in 10 games.
Recent meetings: It was 1-1 when the sides met at Shielfield in September. David Weatherston gave Albion the lead on the hour mark but Darren Lavery levelled in the last minute. We won both games at Forthbank last season, 6-3 and 1-0, while Berwick won twice at Shielfield.
