WORK needs to be done to get Elgin City up to full pace for the League Two season, says assistant manager Keith Gibson.
Gavin Price's number two reflected on Tuesday night's 3-1 Premier Sports Cup defeat to Kelty Hearts at Borough Briggs, see interview above.
He admitted Elgin faded in the second half, having led through Creag Little's first half opener.
Match report: Elgin City 1 Kelty Hearts 3.
Gibson said captain Euan Spark is the latest player in isolation after testing positive for Covid-19, while Brian Cameron was a late call-off from the squad.
Price and Gibson plan to work their players hard over the next ten days - including Saturday's final group match at East Fife - to get everyone ready for the opening league match at home to Stranraer.
