Elgin City have had two young Ross County defenders training with them this week.

And Wilson revealed he hopes to tie up loan deals for the un-named pair for the weekend, and certainly by next week.

Both defenders, the players trained on Tuesday night and are set to train again on Thursday with the North-based squad.

The manager is looking for a positive reaction for the trip to Berwick Rangers.

Wilson was disappointed with the display against East Stirling in last weekend’s 3-0 defeat and admits they got what they deserved.

"I need performances first and foremost. We had it for half an hour against Albion Rovers a couple of weeks ago but not much last week.

Wilson believes two or three new faces would also give the current squad a boost as they try to finish the season with some kind of flourish.

City’s game at Berwick Rangers on Saturday will kick off at 4pm after the SPFL granted a request for a later start to allow Berwick directors to attend the funeral of fellow director and club sponsor Jeff Burnlees, who died last week.

An Elgin City spokesperson said: "Elgin City directors and staff wish to send their condolences to the Burnlees family and to all at Berwick Rangers."
