Injuries rob Stranraer of players

Stranraer are again without the injured David McGurn (toe), David Barron (ankle) and Lee Mair (groin) as they look to move further ahead of visitors Airdrie in the play-off chase.

Kevin Schmidt drops out of the Stair Park squad after agreeing a move to Lowland League side East Kilbride.

Manager Brian Reid said: "This is a big game in terms of the run-in and if we could win it and go six points clear of Airdrie we would be delighted. We lost last weekend in disappointing fashion to Ayr but hopefully we can bounce back from that.

"However, we know that Airdrie will be fighting for everything as well."

Airdrie welcome back on-loan Rangers midfielder Jordon Thompson who missed last Saturday's 1-1 draw with Albion Rovers as he with the Northern Ireland under-19 side in a UEFA tournament.

Stand-in manager Danny Lennon said: "This is a big game as Stranraer and ourselves are chasing the prize of fourth place along with Albion Rovers and the finishing line is getting closer.

"Airdrie have had a reasonable season so far but making the play-offs makes it an excellent season.

"Stranraer are a side who pose a lot of threat however we will work hard at nullifying that threat and getting the win that would take us above them in the table."
