We welcome Montrose to the Locality Hub Bayview Stadium this afternoon for our first match of 2022. Montrose currently sit in 2nd position on 35 points, recording a 2-0 win over Peterhead last time out.
With the squad having been sent ravaged with injury & health issues last week, manager Stevie Crawford expects to have several players returning his weekend. However, as is commonplace in these times, final availability will be dependent on the results of daily lateral flow tests. Danny Swanson and Mikey Cunningham remain the only long-term injury absences.
Jamie Allan, Cammy Dow and Jack Healy have been recalled from their loans at Linlithgow Rose, Berwick Rangers and East Stirlingshire respectively so their progress can be more closely monitored.
East Fife will be in our traditional home colours of black/gold tops, black short and black stockings with the goalkeeper in all green.
Montrose will be in their traditional colours of all-blue with white sleeves with the goalkeeper in teal.
