Two off in score draw

Archibald MacPhee's 84th-minute penalty earned Elgin a late point against East Stirling as both sides were reduced to 10 men in a 2-2 draw at Ochilview Park.

John Coughlin's side took the lead after seven minutes when Kevin Turner tucked away Scott Maxwell's cross.

David Niven then equalised for the visitors four minutes before half-time, the defender's third goal in four games.

Andrew Stirling regained the lead for the hosts when he applied the finish to Jamie Benton's assist in the 58th minute.

But the Shire were denied only their sixth league win of the season six minutes from time when Ryan Frances was sent off for a foul on substitute Paul Millar inside the area allowing MacPhee to convert from the penalty spot.

Elgin's Mark Durnan was then sent off for a second yellow card three minutes into stoppage time.

Rookie Glasgow in line for debut

East Stirling boss John Coughlin has promoted teenager Jamie Glasgow into his first-team squad for the visit of Elgin after impressing displays for Under-19s.

Alex Lurinsky will not make the game after picking up a knock against Alloa last weekend, however on-loan Hibs midfielder Lewis Horner has been passed fit to play and Scott Maxwell is available after a ban.

Coughlin said: "Elgin will be coming here looking to make up for their defeat from Peterhead last weekend and to move three points closer to a play-off place.

"We have our own ambitions of moving off the foot of the table and Jamie has been included on merit in a bid to help us with that."

Elgin hope to have the paperwork completed in time to bring midfielder Alex Cooper in on loan from Ross County as they look to consolidate their place in the promotion play-offs.

The Borough Briggs men will be missing Paul Kaczan, Ross O'Donoghue and Stuart Leslie while striker Brian Cameron is a doubt.

Manager Ross Jack said, "East Stirling have improved throughout the season and John Coughlin deserves great credit for that.

"We know that this will be a really tough game but we have won on the road at Clyde and Montrose recently.

"We are a bit low on numbers but I am keen that we complete the hat-trick of away wins and keep on course for a play-off place."
