Match Preview

Arbroath aim to reel in Stranraer Arbroath player/manager Paul Sheerin has a welcome selection headache ahead of the visit of Third Division leaders Stranraer. Sheerin welcomes back Alan Rattray, Jordyn Sheerin and Robbie Ross from injury, although centre-back Mark Durnan's loan spell is over and he has now returned to St Johnstone. Fourth-placed Arbroath will solidify their position as strong competitors for the title if they can win for what would be a fifth league game in a row. And Sheerin said: "For the first time in my spell as manager I have everyone at the club to pick from and I will need to make the right selection as Stranraer are a right good side. "The table does not lie and their `goals for` column shows they are a team full of danger." Stranraer will be without Sean Winter as they look to open up an eight-point gap on Arbroath at Gayfield. The midfield goal threat will be missing through work commitments, while defensive duo Glen Mitchell and Kevin Nicol remain out with injury. Heading into the clash, Stair Park boss Keith Knox is interested to see how Arbroath`s players cope after their month-long lay-off due to the big freeze. Knox said, "We were a bit rusty in our game against Berwick on Saturday and it took us a while to get going, especially up front. "If Arbroath play like they can we cannot afford to miss any chances. It is a long way to travel for a midweek game and I want to be coming home with the three points."

Match Report

Mitchell keeps Stranraer at summit A heroic performance from Stranraer goalkeeper David Mitchell kept his side top of the Third Division after a goalless draw at Arbroath. The hosts bossed the early exchanges and Kevin McMullan`s drive brought a good stretching save out of Mitchell, who also did well to get down to save Kieran McAnespie`s free-kick. Mitchell was the busiest player on the pitch and produced a fine save to deny Steven Noris` header from close range. The Stranraer stopper was to produce even better after the break when he brilliantly kept out Josh Falkingham`s 18-yard drive and Falkingham put the rebound harmlessly wide. The league leaders finally began to stir and had efforts through Declan Gallagher and Craig Malcolm, but they were grateful to Mitchell`s heroics meaning they leave Gayfield Park with a barely-deserved point.
