Duff is expected to take his place at the heart of the Borough Briggs defence for the visit of East Stirling, despite struggling with a knee injury.Cieran McLean is out with a jaw injury, and Weir said: "East Stirling have beaten us three times this season and it would be great to end that run

A win would boost our chances of being involved in the play-offs."We lost a two goal lead in midweek to Berwick which of course was disappointing however we were behind at half-time and it may prove to be a vital point if we can win this game."East Stirling welcome back fit again Nathan Shepherd but he may have to settle for a place on the bench.On-loan Celtic youngster Luke Donnelly will definitely miss out however due to commitments with his parent club.The Shire are now safe from the relegation play-offs and head coach Craig Tully is telling his squad to keep looking up as he explained: "We have done well to move away from the foot of the table however just because we are safe does not mean we will stop."We have an outside chance of making the promotion play-offs and will go to Elgin looking to repeat our recent win over them

To win twice in their place in the one season would be a terrific achievement
