It all comes down to Tuesday night's matches, with Elgin needing to get a better result than fifth-placed Stranraer to squeeze into the play-offs.

The Black and Whites are at home to champions Queen's Park while Stranraer host Edinburgh.

If both Elgin and Stranraer won or drew in midweek they would both go into the play-offs ahead of Stirling.
