Doris to feature for Red Lichties

Arbroath have brought striker Steven Doris back to the club on a loan deal from Dundee just six months after he moved to Dens Park and he will feature at some stage against visitors Stranraer.

Ricky Little, who has had surgery on a broken foot, and Connor Birse, who has a knee injury, continue to be out for the Red Lichties who are looking to play catch up with the Stair Park side.

Player/manager Paul Sheerin said: "We are presently 10 points behind our visitors who occupy the last play-off place. That is a big gap and we certainly do not want the gap to get any bigger."

Stranraer welcome back on-loan Aberdeen defender Scott Rumsby after injury as they look to make it seven games in a row without defeat.

Martin Grehan misses out through suspension and Marc Corcoran is out with a hip injury.

"We want to keep things going but we were disappointing against Clyde this week and we were fortunate to battle back to force a replay," Stair Park manager Stephen Aitken said.

"The players are looking to make up for that and winning this game and creating a good bit of daylight between us and Arbroath would be a great way to get back on track."
