Steven Noble missing through suspension for Peterhead

Peterhead will be without the suspended Steven Noble when they host Stenhousemuir in Ladbrokes League One.

Scott Ross could also be missing through illness and Leighton McIntosh picked up an injury in last weekend's last-gasp win at Airdrie.

Winger Nicky Riley may start after turning the game against the Diamonds from a 3-1 defeat to a 4-3 success with a fine display as a substitute and manager Jim McInally sai: "I am a bit spoiled for choice up front but I need to get the choice right.

"Stenhousemuir came from three down to beat us in our last meeting and will take heart from defeating Airdrie on Tuesday."

Stenhousemuir are again without the injured Ciaran Summers (groin), Allan Smith (hip) and Jason Scotland (hamstring) with manager Brown Ferguson delighted with his side's reaction to losing 5-1 to Stranraer last weekend.

Ferguson said: "The players were hugely disappointed after the Stranraer game. However, they went to Airdrie and won the game in the last minute. We had been on a disappointing run of results but we can hopefully put that behind us as we have something to build on now."

"We recognise that Peterhead away is one of the most difficult games in this league and we simply have to play well to bring anything home."
