Elgin V East Fife - view commentary, squad, and statistics of the game live.Sutherland can't goElgin City will be without Shane Sutherland against visitors East Fife.Sutherland is missing due to an ankle injury while defender Marvin Andrews is also absent after parting company with the Borough Briggs club this week.Mark Nicolson is a doubt with flu, with manager Jim Weir looking for his men to haul themselves off the foot of the table with a win.Weir said: "Winning at Montrose last week has given us a bit more confidence and has also given us the chance to come off the bottom if we win and other results go our way

To do that with two games in hand would be a great way to start 2015."East Fife could hand one-time Real Sociedad defender Julen Etxabeguren Leanizbarrutia his debut and Liam Smith is available after a knock.Ross Campbell is suspended and Scott Smith is out with an ankle injury, with player-manager Gary Naysmith a doubt due to a calf problem.Naysmith said: "We are heading to Elgin after a 5-1 defeat from Arbroath, however we need to remember that until Ross was sent off just after half-time we had matched them at 1-1."The rest of the game was disappointing but if we can play like we did for the first half for the full game at Elgin then we have a chance."
