Stranraer have fully fit squad
League leaders Stranraer welcome back tough-tackling defender Kevin Nicol into their squad for the match against Elgin.
Manager Keith Knox has a full compliment of players to choose from as attempt to earn their fourth victory in five home games.
Knox, who saw his side score nine times without reply against St Cuthbert's last weekend on Scottish Cup duty, said: "We want to keep our good form going and I really want us to consolidate our place at the top of the league.
"We went to Elgin last month and were fortunate to come away with a 2-1 win. They dominated the opening 20 minutes and we have to be prepared for a quick start from them in this game."
Elgin City boss Ross Jack welcomes on-loan Aberdeen goalkeeper Scott Bain back into his starting line-up for their long trip to Stranraer.
The Pittodrie club refused to allow Bain to be cup-tied by playing against Brora Rangers last weekend.
Striker Craig Frizzell can feature against his former side as his red card last Saturday will be served on Scottish Cup duty.
But Paul Kaczan and Zander Jack have been ruled out and Barry Wilson is a major doubt.
Jack also has other concerns and said: "I could be without another three players because of work commitments and it is hardly the ideal preparation for a trip to the league leaders.
"We will however travel with confidence on the back of our recent fine run and look for the three points."
Comeback kids stay on top
Stranraer had to come back from a goal behind to defeat Elgin 2-1 at Stair Park and remain top of the Third division by two points.
A goal in either half for the league leaders saw off Elgin, who in the end left the field with only 10 men.
Elgin took the lead on seven minutes through Jason Crooks from the spot after Armand One had fouled Jamie Duff.
Stranraer had missed chances through Scott Agnew and Sean Winter before One redeemed himself by slotting the ball into the bottom corner from close range to level.
Stranraer piled on the pressure in the second half with efforts from Daniel Mitchell and Winter, but Elgin stopper Scott Bain was in fine form.
Bain was eventually defeated by Agnew from the spot after Duff had fouled One.
City's David Niven was sent off in the last minute for a foul on Winter.
