Bell worry for Stranraer

Stranraer have a doubt over Stephen Bell for the visit of East Fife as they look to pick up another three points in their quest for a play-off spot.

Chris Aitken's ankle injury and Marc Corcoran's groin problem see them continue to miss out.

Manager Stephen Aitken said: "The players were terrific against Dunfermline on Saturday and deserved their 3-1 win. We need to go out and play well again as nothing has been achieved as yet.

"East Fife may be disappointed at losing late to Rangers on Saturday but they will be motivated at ensuring that they do not sit below Airdrie in the table for too long."

East Fife's Gary Fisher is out after dislocating his elbow as the Bayview men went down 1-0 to an injury-time penalty against leaders Rangers on Saturday.

Scott McBride is out with a hip injury and knee injuries see Cyrus Moosavi and Ryan Stewart miss out.

Player-manager Gary Naysmith said: "We will need to lift the boys as it was a cruel end to the game. There will be a few tired legs and I will need to freshen the side up.

"We have slipped behind Airdrie now and into ninth place, but the best way to deal with that is by winning this game and climbing above them."
