Airdrie at full strength ahead of clash with Stenhousemuir

Airdrie's stand-in manager Danny Lennon has a full squad to choose from as he looks to guide the Diamonds towards the promotion play-offs and away from the relegation ones by seeing off visitors Stenhousemuir.

Ahead of the clash, Lennon said: "It was disappointing to lose 4-0 at Stranraer last weekend, however we are not giving up on going for promotion.

"We remain involved in a sprint for the last remaining promotion place and will keep going for it as long as we can.

"We are respectful of the teams below us but a win over Stenhousemuir would take us six points clear of them and see us only looking up the way."

Stenhousemuir miss the suspended Euan Murray and Ciaran Summers as well as Kieran Millar and Allan Smith who have groin injuries.

Carlos Mazana-Martinez is also out after suffering a concussion in the 1-0 defeat against Brechin last weekend.

The Warriors have defeated Airdrie three times this season with late goals and manager Brown Ferguson said: "I would gladly settle for a similar outcome. Our performance at Brechin was acceptable in a game where there was always only going to be the one goal and unfortunately they got it.

"We will look to bounce back at Airdrie although I am sure they are determined to bounce back after losing heavily to Stranraer."
