There are no fresh concerns for manager John Coughlin, who will have a full squad with the exception of only long-term absentees Calum Helm & Euan Bauld available.

In fact, the boss will be boosted by the respective returns of club captain Jonny Fairbairn, tenacious forward Michael McKenna and energetic midfielder Finn Graham, all of whom were due to return from suspension last weekend.

Brian Martin could also be in line for his full debut after featuring from the bench as a trialist at New Bayview a few weeks back.

Elgin City Team News:

Berwick’s Highland opposition boast the best home record in League two and currently sit top of the table.

That form is largely down to the excellence of familiar suspects such as Brian Cameron and Craig Gunn, the latter of whom has already netted 15 times this season.

However John Coughlin and his team will also be aware of new blood in the Elgin ranks such as Dylan Easton, the former ‘Gers midfield maestro recently joining Elgin and making an immediate impact.

Match Odds:

SPFL sponsors Ladbrokes believe the ‘Gers have their work cut out today, pricing City as favourites for the clash.

Elgin City – 7/10

Draw – 3/1

Berwick Rangers – 7/2

Match Officials:

Gavin Duncan will control the tie, and will be assisted by both Ralph Gordon & Jordan Curran.
