Elgin deprived of Niven's services

Elgin City will be without captain David Niven through a knee injury as they look to end a run of three consecutive league draws against Berwick Rangers.

The Borough Briggs side, who won handsomely 5-1 over East Fife in the Scottish Cup last Saturday, welcome back the pacy Lewis Halford after a calf injury.

Manager Ross Jack said: ``It was a terrific win last week but we have to remember that we started quite slowly and could have been a goal down as East Fife bossed the first 20 minutes.

``If we play like we did once we got into our stride against Berwick then I am sure we will be celebrating that first Third Division win in a few weeks.''

Berwick are without the injured trio of Marc Lancaster, Dean Droudge and Damian Gielty.

To make matters worse, winger Fraser McLaren is also a major fitness doubt.

Shielfield manager Ian Little is targeting a win, saying: ``Elgin are a strong side particularly at home where they use the pace of their attacking players to great effect.

``They certainly like to score a few goals but if we can shut them out and get a win we would move to within a point of them in the table.

``We played really well against Stenhousemuir last weekend and were unfortunate to only draw. It would be great to be heading into our replay with them on Tuesday with a win over Elgin under our belt.``
