Stranraer striker Mark McGuigan fit to face former club

Stranraer defender Scott Robertson is doubtful for the visit of Albion Rovers to Stair Park with a knee injury however one-time Coatbridge striker Mark McGuigan is fit enough to play from start against his old club.

Manager Brian Reid is looking for his men to start showing a ruthless side as he explained: "We need to start finding the back of the net as our build-up play deserves it. We are hitting the woodwork, firing just past or forcing goalkeepers into great saves and then being hit by a sucker-punch and losing points.

"Rovers have done well since promotion however we can win if we can score."

Albion Rovers hope to have Dutch defender Ricardo Talu available after a knock kept him out of the 3-1 defeat to Airdrie last weekend with back-up goalkeeper Blair Lochhead the only injury concern faced by player-manager Darren Young.

The Cliftonhill manager said: "We may have lost but there were plenty of positives to take from the Airdrie game. We pushed them back for long spells but we were just not precise enough in the final third where passes were just not accurate or we were just not clinical.

"This is a game that we can win if we can score when we are on top."
