McPhee faces fitness battle
Elgin City will check on Archie McPhee ahead of kick-off against Stranraer.
The full-back is struggling with a knee knock and faces a late fitness check.
Goalkeeper Zander Clark will play as the suspension for his sending-off against Queen's Park last week is restricted to the Scottish Cup.
The Borough Briggs side have already ruled out Paul Kaczan, Craig Frizzell and Steven Edwards
Manager Ross Jack said: "This is a huge game and it could well be won by the side who copes best with recent disappointments.
"The two of us have been on good runs that ended recently, so I am hoping that it is Elgin who bounce back with a win. The games between us are usually tight and I am sure this one will be no different."
Stranraer goalkeeper David Mitchell and defender Grant Gallagher are suspended for the long trip north.
Midfielder Chris Aitken is also sidelined with a broken foot so youngster Dean Agnew keeps his place in manager Keith Knox's squad.
Knox said: "We missed Chris last week in our Scottish Cup defeat to Forfar, but we just have to get on with things as I believe that we still have the players that can win us games.
"Elgin is never an easy place to go but we can win if we defend better than we have in recent games.
"We beat them earlier in the season and Elgin were probably the better team on the day so we have to guard against a revenge mission."
