Aitken absent again for Stranraer
Stranraer will again be without midfield ace Chris Aitken when they take on East Stirlingshire looking to build on their success at league leaders Annan in midweek.
Manager Keith Knox has asked his men to start where they left off.
He said: "It was a great performance in midweek but we have to repeat that at home now as our record at Stair Park needs improving.
"I want us to go on the type of run that we had in the first quarter when we won six games out of seven to really give our promotion hopes a boost.
"East Stirling have undoubtedly improved. Drawing with Elgin is warning enough to us that we cannot take this game lightly in any way."
Improving East Stirling will be without experienced on-loan Cowdenbeath player Craig Winter.
Winter has an ankle injury and misses out as the Shire look to win back-to-back games for the first time this season.
Head coach John Coughlin's options are further reduced by the absences of striker Jordyn Sheerin, who has an ankle injury, suspended defender Ryan Frances and captain Iain Chisholm, who has work commitments.
Coughlin said: "We are a wee bit down in numbers but we are travelling in good spirit as our league results have been good recently.
"Stranraer are playing well and scoring goals so this will be a test of our progress."
Stranraer run riot
Stranraer ran out emphatic 6-0 winners as they brushed aside East Stirling to stay three points off the summit in the Scottish Third Division.
A brace from Stephen Stirling was added to by goals from Sean Winter, Stuart McColm, Scott Taggart and Michael Moore.
Former Rangers midfielder Stirling converted a penalty on the half-hour mark and notched his second just two minutes later as he fired an effort into the top corner from 18 yards.
Winter's close-range finish a minute later rounded off Stranraer's first-half scoring, but it took just 13 minutes for them to pick up where they left off after the break.
Stuart McColm beat Calum Antell at his near post to add a fourth before Scott Taggart fired into the far corner just past the hour mark.
Substitute Moore rounded off the scoring with eight minutes remaining.
