Match Preview

Aitken blow for Blues Chris Aitken will once again be unavailable for Stranraer's clash with promotion rivals Annan. The midfielder has had a plaster removed from his broken foot but is not match fit as yet. Despite winning 3-0 at Galabank at the beginning of December, Blues manager Keith Knox is taking nothing for granted against Harry Cairney's men. "Annan had good spells in that game where if they had scored the outcome may have been very different so we know that we have to be at our best again," said Knox. "I want us to play good football and be top at the Third Division at the end of 2011 and the only way we can do that is to win the game." Annan will be without Michael McGowan. The full-back is suspended following his dismissal against Berwick last Saturday but Aaron Muirhead is available after a two-game ban. The Galabank side, who have slipped to third after three months of leading the Third Division, will also be missing the injured Gary Wild and Graeme Bell, while Jordan McKechnie is unavailable due to illness. Manager Harry Cairney had a wasted Boxing Day as he explained: "I went to spy on Stranraer against Clyde but I did not learn anything as the wind ruined the game. "They have good players in key areas as they showed against us in the last game but we are looking to bounce back after losing our place at the top of the table."

Match Report

Winter wonderland for Stranraer Sean Winter's brace ensured Stranraer ended the year at the summit of Division Three following their 4-2 victory over Annan Athletic. A win for either side would have moved them into first place and the hosts had to come from behind twice. Ian Harty got the opening goal from the penalty spot in the 36th minute when Frank McKeown was adjudged to have fouled John MacBeth. Stranraer hit back before half-time when Stuart McColm's cross was headed home by Winter but the visitors nudged ahead shortly after the break through Sean O'Connor's driven effort. Again the home side responded immediately with Stephen Stirling scoring a penalty he had won after being hacked down by Steven Sloan. Winter put Stranraer ahead with a fine effort from 18 yards in the 69th minute and Craig Malcolm's placed finish wrapped it up two minutes from time.
