Hartley waits on Marr

Alloa manager Paul Hartley will give defender Jason Marr (back) as long as possible to prove his fitness before confirming his side to face Stranraer.

Definitely missing for the Wasps as they look for revenge after a 3-2 defeat at Stair Park last month is full-back Michael Doyle, who had surgery on a groin problem recently.

Hartley said: "It would be good to make up for that result, but fair play to Stranraer as they have done well since they brought in Stephen Aitken as manager.

"They gave us a really tough afternoon but we missed chances at crucial times.

"We will look to get the win and a bit of revenge at our place where we have been strong all season."

Stranraer will be without striker Michael Moore as he has sustained a hamstring injury.

The Blues will also be missing former Dunfermline midfielder Nicky Phinn who parted company with them earlier this week at the end of his short-term deal.

Manager Stephen Aitken said: "Alloa are a very strong side, especially at home, but we will go there with the confidence of knowing that we can beat them as we showed in the last game.

"With two wins and a draw in our last four away games we have given ourselves a chance of pulling away from the foot of the table, but it will take a really good performance to pick up a win at Alloa."
