Same again for Warriors as they prepare for battle with Diamonds

Stenhousemuir will have an unchanged squad for the visit of Airdrie.

Teenage goalkeeper Colin McCabe, on loan from Celtic, will be between the posts for a second game as Jamie Barclay has a thigh strain and Dean Shaw is struggling with a back injury. Meanwhile, Allan Smith remains out with a thigh problem.

Warriors boss Brown Ferguson is determined that his side narrow the four-point gap that the visitors have established.

He said: "Airdrie have moved ahead of us after the last couple of games so it would be good to move closer to them. It will be a tough game but we have managed two wins against them already this season and it would be good to complete a hat-trick."

Airdrie defender David van Zanten left the club this week and Hugo Faria will also be absent at Ochilview due to a ban.

Two wins in a row have moved the Diamonds back into the promotion race with manager Eddie Wolecki Black out to avoid a third late sucker punch against Stenhousemuir.

"We have done well to pick up six points from six but we cannot stop. In the two games between the clubs this season Stenhousemuir have won them both due to really late goals," said Wolecki Black.

"This is a chance to win some of those points back and we intend to take it."
