Grehan boost for Stranraer
Third-placed Stranraer welcome East Stirling to Stair Park and striker Martin Grehan is available again after a thigh strain kept him out of last weekend's win over Montrose.
The only absentee for the Blues will be full-back Grant Gallagher, who has an ankle problem, with manager Keith Knox warning his side that the Shire are a very different proposition to the one that lost 6-1 on their last visit to the south of Scotland.
Knox said: "They have improved without doubt since that game and any team that can score six times against Peterhead must have something about them.
"We also needed a late penalty to draw against them up at their place so we cannot expect a repeat of the last game here."
East Stirling will continue their drive to get off the foot of the Third Division, but they will be without suspended defender Ryan Frances.
Striker Alex Lurinsky is unavailable due to a groin strain, with youngster Jamie Benton keeping his place in head coach John Coughlin's starting XI as a result.
Coughlin said: "Stranraer are a good side and are going to be in a play-off place by the end of the season but our plan is to win this game.
"We do not want to finish at the bottom of the Third Division and we have to win games to avoid doing that.
"We don't have a happy memory of our last trip to there but we have the chance to show if we have improved."
