We travel to the Falkirk Stadium this afternoon for our 9th cinch League One match of the season against Falkirk. The hosts sit 7 points above us in 6th place having scored a last-minute equaliser to earn a point against Montrose last time out.
Ross Davidson, Danny Swanson, Pat Slattery and Mikey Cunningham all remain side-lined with long-term injuries this weekend. Stewart Murdoch and Kyle Connell are unlikely to make today’s match, but both could feature next weekend, while Ross Dunlop is also a doubt for today’s game.
From the Manager
"We’ve had two very good training sessions this week and we’ll go into the game with confidence looking to build on last week’s performance. We’ve brought in David Devine from Motherwell on loan but were disappointed not to get 2-3 more deals over the line before the window closed as a knock-on effect of parent clubs not completing the deals they wanted."
"We know we haven’t made the start to the season that we all would’ve wanted but I know the players really appreciated the response from the fans at the end of last week’s game and I know you will continue to support them as we look to kick start our season today."

We welcome Clyde to the Locality Hub Bayview stadium this afternoon for our 8th cinch League One match of the season. Clyde sit 4 points above us in 8th place having scored a last minute equaliser to earn a point against league leaders Queen’s Park last time out.
6 players remain unavailable for East Fife this weekend. Mikey Cunningham looks likely to need an operation on an ankle injury, Pat Slattery needs a few weeks rest for a back injury and Stewart Murdoch is still making a managed return to full fitness following a hamstring injury. In better news, Ross Davidson should return to full training next week with Danny Swanson hopefully also returning to light training next week following a knee injury picked up in pre-season. Kyle Connell also returned to training with parent club Kilmarnock this week so should be back in contention for us in a few weeks.
