Elgin boss Ross Jack is facing an injury crisis ahead of his team's Scottish Cup clash against Dunfermline.
Sean Crichton's shoulder injury rules him out while Brian Cameron will not feature due to a foot problem and Paul Millar (knee) is also unavailable.
Ross McKinnon, Cieran McLean and Sam Urquhart are all also struggling to feature so Mark Nicolson may get his first outing of the season after a stomach injury.
Jack said: "Dunfermline is a hard enough game with a full squad so it is disappointing going into it with a weakened one.
"It has not ideal preparation to such a tough encounter but we will go out and be positive.
"We are at home and if we play like we can then we have a chance."
Dunfermline boss Jim Jefferies has been given a boost after his on-loan players were given the green light to feature in the Cup.
Partick Thistle goalkeeper Ryan Scully and Dundee United trio of Jordan Moore, Luke Johnston and Ryan Ferguson have all been cleared by their clubs to play at Borough Briggs.
Chris Kane will be missing for the Pars through suspension but Ryan Thomson is available after a knock.
Jefferies said: "We need to be wary and work hard for the win. I watched them recently come back from two goals down at Berwick so they have some backbone.
"This is a real test as an away cup tie in the Scottish Cup is a first for a lot of our players."
