A 4-0 thumping at Clyde last weekend left the City boss wondering how many of his squad are worthy of a new contract.

He admits there are a few who have yet to convince him, and is urging them to put in a derby performance this weekend to help make his mind up.

“The players have now got to show me that they want contracts next season, simple as that,” said Wilson.

“Some are still playing for a deal, some I’ve definitely seen enough to say ‘yeah’.

“There’s definitely a few who I’m still waiting to see more from, so they’ll have that to play for. I’m kind of hoping that should be enough to get a reaction.

“Peterhead will be a tough game but I dare say we’ll have a few changes.”

Mark Nicolson is sidelined by a hamstring injury and David Niven, Paul McMullan, Jamie Masson, Brian Cameron and Paul Millar remain on the casualty list, leaving City short not only for the Peterhead clash but also for their visit to Stirling Albion on Tuesday.
