Simon Ferry and Rory McAllister set to feature against Stranraer

Peterhead welcome back Simon Ferry and Rory McAllister from suspension as they look to apply pressure on leaders Dunfermline by defeating visitors Stranraer.

Marc Lawrence is over the knock he picked up in Saturday's 4-1 success at Stenhousemuir, but Jamie Stevenson is doubtful after picking up a thigh problem in the same game.

Manager Jim McInally said: "A win takes us very close to securing a play-off place, but it would also be good to win and cut Dunfermline's lead to eight points.

"All we can do is win games and see where that takes us, but this one will not be easy as Stranraer are on a good run."

Stranraer will have Ryan Thomson available after he served a suspension in Saturday's win at Albion Rovers. David McGurn (toe), David Barron (ankle) and Lee Mair (groin) are out.

Manager Brian Reid said: "Our form since the turn of the year has been good and helped us climb the table. Making the top four would be a great reward for that improvement.

"We played well to win at Albion Rovers on Saturday, but this is an even harder game as Peterhead are scoring for fun."
