Millar time for Elgin

Paul Millar scored twice as Elgin eventually sank lowly Clyde 4-2.

The visitors went ahead after 23 minutes when Kieran McGachie rose highest to head in Kieran McDonald's corner.

But the lead lasted just six minutes before Daniel Moore floated in a free-kick which Millar nodded past Jamie Barclay.

Craig Gunn put the hosts ahead eight minutes after the interval when he tucked in Millar's header across goal and Iain Gray put through his own net to make it 3-1 three minutes later.

Clyde could have halved the deficit after 66 minutes but Stefan McCluskey skied his close-range shot over the crossbar.

Instead, Millar grabbed his second, and City's fourth, when he headed in another Moore free-kick in the 75th minute.

McGachie puled one back nine minutes from time but Elgin held out.

Moore worry for City

Elgin will give Daniel Moore a fitness test ahead of the visit of Clyde.

The midfielder limped off against Queen's Park on Saturday with a thigh injury.

Dennis Wyness (hamstring) along with Lewis Halford (calf) have already been ruled out, with recent signing Ross McKinnon in line for his debut following an ankle problem.

A win for the Moray Men would keep their play-off hopes alive.

"Defeating Queen's Park at the weekend has made things very interesting for us," boss Ross Jack said. "We still need other sides to do us favours but if we defeat Clyde we pull to within three points of fourth place.

"It will not just be a case of turning up as Clyde have won three out of their last four games."

Clyde defender John Kane has left the club and he misses out on the long trip north as the Bully Wee look for win number three in a row.

The Broadwood side are again without David Marsh (groin), Michael Oliver (knee) and Gavin Brown (hamstring).

Manager Jim Duffy has praised his team for the work they have been putting into games.

Duffy said: "We have beaten Annan and East Stirling in our last couple of games without playing particularly brilliant football but by working really hard.

"We will need to continue working hard against an Elgin side that still have aspirations of moving into the play-offs.

"We are defending better now than we have been in a long while and it would be great to keep that going at Elgin."
