Match Preview

Now new arrivals for Knox Stranraer manager Keith Knox has failed in his attempts to bring in new faces for the home clash with Berwick. Stuart Devine continues to be absent with a groin injury and striker Michael Moore will be missing after suffering a recurrence of a calf problem. Steven Noble is rated as having only a 50/50 chance of playing after picking up a hamstring injury in the 2-0 defeat against Queens Park last time out. Knox said: "It has been frustrating as we have made offers to several players but they have not been accepted yet. "We are on a horrible little run at the moment and I am hoping to get a positive response from the players." Berwick continue to be without goalkeeper Ian McAldon with a back problem, but they are otherwise at full-strength. The Borderers boss Jimmy Crease also has a selection dilemma after Fraser McLaren came off the bench last Saturday against East Stirling and scored twice. Crease said: "Fraser gave me a lot to think about with his goals last week and with Darren Gribben also available we have great competition for places up front." Crease is hoping that his men put on a performance at Stair Park, adding: "Stranraer's ground has never been a happy hunting ground for us and I am hoping that the players can go out and make it a good venue this time."

Match Report

Stranraer register win Stranraer recorded their first win of the season and moved off the bottom of the Scottish Third Division thanks to a 2-1 win over Berwick. An even game was sparked into life in two second-half minutes when two long-range strikes put Stranraer firmly in control. Christopher Aitken opened the scoring from the edge of the area when his right-footed effort beat Jamie Barclay after 61 minutes. And Aitken's effort was bettered in the 64th minute when striker Craig Malcolm smashed an effort from 20 yards into the top right corner. Berwick had a chance to pull one back minutes later, but in-form Paul Currie blazed over from point-blank range. Substitute Fraser McLaren picked up Andrew McLaren's pass and unleashed a 35-yard wondergoal after 76 minutes to reduce the deficit. But the midfielder then fired wide from six yards with five minutes remaining as Stranraer held on.
