INJURIES in Elgin City’s defence has forced manager Gavin Price to make his move on the loan market.
Weaknesses in a makeshift City back four were exploited by Peterhead on Saturday, as a Rory McAllister doubled earned the visitors a 2-0 victory.
With right back Matthew Cooper and centre ha’f Stephen Bronsky definitely missing Saturday’s league visit to Cowdenbeath, Price is taking no chances.
“We haven’t got enough defenders at the club at the moment,” he said. “We will maybe have to look if we can do something about it during the week.
“I’ve been watching two or three games over the last couple of weeks so I’ve got a couple of players in mind who could come in and do a job for us.”
Cooper injured his ankle in training two days before the Peterhead game and although he sat on the bench he wasn’t fit to play.
The former Caley Thistle stopper is set to be out for a fortnight.
Bronsky is recovering from a knee problem which flared up during the warm-up of the recent 2-0 win against Stenhousemuir.
He is rated as having virtually no chance of playing against Cowdenbeath.
Elgin regularly used the loan system during previous boss Jim Weir’s three years in charge alongside Price, and may recruit this week.
They already have Morton full-back Lewis Strapp and Aberdeen striker Bruce Anderson on loan until January.
