Duo back in for Stranraer

Stranraer have Liam Rowan and Paul Cairney free from injury again when they face Peterhead.

Manager Brian Reid is looking for his side to add a home win to the away success they had at Cowdenbeath last weekend.

Reid said: "It was a terrific way to open our season and we need to now build on that with a win over Peterhead. It is important that we are strong at home and whilst Stranraer had an excellent record over Peterhead last season, that does not really count for anything now.

"They are a good side with good forwards but it is a game that we can win."

Peterhead have Jamie Redman available after a knock, however Scott Ross is suspended and Steven Noble misses out injured.

Shane Sutherland is struggling with a hamstring injury and manager Jim McInally knows what his side have to do to secure a win against their hosts.

McInally said: "To lose five times in total to Stranraer last season was really disappointing and it is time to put that right. To achieve that we have to keep Stuart Malcolm and Jamie Longworth quiet as they are the best striking partnership in this league.

"If we can stop them from scoring then we have the players that can nick a goal."
