Rumsby misses out

Stranraer's on-loan Aberdeen full back Scott Rumsby will miss out against Stenhousemuir with a stomach injury.

The Blues are also missing Lloyd Kinnaird (back) and Sean Winter (ankle) with former Stirling Albion and Dunfermline midfielder Steven Bell again included as a trialist as makes his way back after three years out with an Achilles injury.

Manager Stephen Aitken said: "We have done well to defeat Arbroath and Forfar but we need to play to that same high standard again to see off Stenhousemuir.

"They are second in the table for a reason. We will need to dig deep to win."

Stenhousemuir include Darren Smith in their squad after the striker shook off the knock that kept him out of last weekend's 3-2 win over Brechin.

Full-back Nicky Devlin is also available despite picking up a knee injury against the Glebe Park men, however David Rowson remains out after knee surgery and Ross McMillan is an injury doubt.

Manager Martyn Corrigan said: "Stranraer will battle for everything but I do not mind that as our players have a lot of battling qualities at home.

"They have done well recently and Stair Park is a hard venue but it is a game that we can win."
