Christian Nade unavailable as Stranraer look for hat-trick of league wins

Stranraer striker Christian Nade will miss his side's attempt to win a third game in a row against Brechin with an ankle problem.

Manager Brian Reid said: "We went to Queen's Park last weekend and won 2-0 to build on a good win over Albion Rovers the week before. We are starting to achieve the results required to get us up the table and into the play-off zone.

"It will be a test to get the third win as Brechin have good experienced players and sit in second place. However we know that a win takes us closer to them and that is motivation enough."

Brechin are able to include Dougie Hill after he shook off a back injury but however Chris O'Neil remains out with a hamstring problem.

Player-manager Darren Dods said: "We faced Peterhead last week, who are like Stranraer in that they are a better side than their league position would indicate. We were good in the first half but poor in the second and we got the win. It would be great to win this one as well.

"We do however recognise that Stair Park is a very tough venue and that Stranraer are hitting a bit of form so this will be a difficult game."
