Stranraer's Stevie Bell could miss out on Dunfermline reunion

Stranraer midfielder Stevie Bell could miss out when on the visit of former club Dunfermline.

Bell is suffering from a back injury and could join David Barron (ankle), Scott Robertson and Craig Malcolm (both knee) on the sidelines.

Stair Park manager Brian Reid said: "Dunfermline are a good side but they had a disappointing day at St Mirren last weekend where they lost heavily and they will be looking to bounce back at our expense.

"However we have battled hard to defeat Forfar and then Airdrie in away games and we'now looking to add to that by winning at home."

Dunfermline are set to include fit-again Lewis Martin, Mickael Antoine-Curier and Faissal El Bakhtaoui after knocks.

But Josh Falkingham, Callum Fordyce and Ryan Williamson all remain out with broken legs.

Boss Allan Johnston said: "Stranraer is a hard venue and they will be confident after winning their last two games. Every game will be tough between now and the end of the season and we need to be up for that.

"We let ourselves down last weekend when we lost 4-0 to St Mirren in the Petrofac Cup and we are looking to get back on track."
