Triple boost for Stranraer
Stranraer could be boosted by the return of three key players for the visit of Berwick.
Goalkeeper David Mitchell and midfielder Stephen Stirling are available after injury while striker Michael Moore is looking like he will win his fitness battle after a calf injury.
However, the Blues will be without Frank McKeown. The defender is suspended following his red card against Queens Park last weekend. Full-back Grant Gallagher will also miss out with an ankle knock.
Manager Keith Knox said: "Berwick will be looking to hit back after a couple of defeats so they will be very dangerous opponents.
"They have very good strikers, who have perhaps been inconsistent, but if they play well you have to be on the top of your game to keep them out."
Berwick are likely to be without midfielder Kevin McDonald.
McDonald's wife is due to give birth on Saturday so the 26-year-old is not expected to travel.
Central defender Chris McLeod is the only other absentee for the Borderers, with manager Ian Little looking for his men to get some luck in an away match after feeling short-changed after their last two home games.
"We are just needing a wee break to get going again as we have not had a break of the ball in our last couple of games at Shielfield. Perhaps being on the road will see things go in our favour," said Little.
"We played well particularly in the first half against Peterhead and if we can reach that level of performance again we will do okay."
Stranraer miss out on second
Stranraer missed the chance to go second after falling to a 3-1 defeat to Berwick Rangers.
The visitors, who are now up to sixth, took the lead after 27 minutes when Stuart Noble finished clinically from close range for his first goal since November.
But Stranraer went into the break on level term thanks to Stuart McColm's stoppage-time equaliser. The striker fired past Jamie Barclay from close range after being found in the area by Sean Winter's pass.
Berwick regained the lead in the 68th minute through Fraser McLaren's well-taken goal after good work from Darren Gribben.
They secured the three points with 10 minutes left when John Ferguson fired past David Mitchell to score his first goal for the club.
