Match Preview

Galabank poised for play-off showdown Annan will be without midfielder Jordan McKechnie following his midweek red card as they take on Stranraer in a crunch promotion clash. The Galabank side have also ruled out Bryan Gilfillan due to injury while Michael McGowan, Jack Steele and Sean O'Connor are all rated as doubts. Manager Harry Cairney said: "Stranraer have been a bogey team for Annan this season as they were the first to beat us and then the first to beat us at home. "It would be great to get a win and put that right and also get our play-off hopes going up the way again. "We have not won at Galabank for a couple of months now and this would be the perfect game for us to end that run." Stranraer have snapped up Dumbarton midfielder Ryan Borris on loan ahead of their trip to Annan. Defender Grant Gallagher (ankle) is the only absentee for the Stair Park men for a game which manager Keith Knox describes as "massive". Knox said: "We have done better against Annan this season than ever before and it would be great for that to continue in what could be a massive game in the Third Division. "It is always a hard game as they put you under great pressure especially with set-pieces at their place. "A win would be a great boost to our play-off hopes as it would move us nine points clear of Annan."

Match Report

Blues stage comeback Stranraer recovered from an early goal as they dented Annan's play-off hopes in a 3-1 win at Galabank. The hosts got off to a flying start when Steve Swinglehurst rose highest to head home David Cox's cross after just four minutes. But the Blues were level nine minutes later when Christopher Aitken netted from the spot after Michael McGowan felled Martin Grehan. The visitors took the lead on the stroke of half-time when Frank McKeown was on hand to fire in from Aitken's corner. Craig Malcolm ensured victory three minutes from time when he collected Sean Winter's pass to finish inside the area. Victory keeps Keith Knox's side in pole position for the play-offs but the Black and Golds are still six points adrift.
