Dalziel completes comeback

Scott Dalziel scored the winner as Berwick came from behind to beat Elgin 2-1.

The visitors made a strong start to the game and it wasn't long before they found themselves in front.

City striker Craig Gunn opened the scoring after just three minutes when he stroked the ball past Berwick goalkeeper Marc McCallum from close range.

Berwick started the second half brightly and drew level in the 59th minute when Darren Lavery's volley from the right side of the box found its way into the top of the net.

The hosts continued to dominate as the half went on and it came as no surprise when they scored the winning goal in the 74th minute, with Dalziel's 12-yard volley beating Elgin stopper Joe Malin.

Easton struggling for Berwick game

Berwick forward Dylan Easton is struggling to face Elgin due to an ankle knock he sustained in Saturday's 3-1 defeat by Rangers.

The Borderers welcome back Steve Notman from suspension, but Kevin McDonald remains sidelined for a further game with a ban and Dene Droudge (knee) and Marc Lancaster (back) are long-term absentees.

Manager Ian Little is looking for his side to build on recent positive performances that have not brought the right rewards.

He explained: "We have been playing well without getting the points that we deserve.

"If we play as well as we have been doing I'm sure we will finally get a break and get the win over Elgin that will help us push towards the play-offs."

Elgin suffered a blow ahead of the trip when it was confirmed new signing Ross McKinnon suffered ankle ligament damage in the warm-up at East Stirling and will be sidelined for a few weeks.

Knee injuries keep Jamie Duff and David Niven out along with Dennis Wyness who has a hamstring problem.

Darren Moore and Cieran McLean miss out due to work commitments, with Lewis Halford also staying put due to the impending birth of his first child.

Sean Crighton is available after a ban, Graeme Beveridge is free of work commitments and trialist Cameron MacDonald will play.

Manager Ross Jack said: "It's not ideal but we will battle for the win that will get our promotion push going again."
