Stranraer wait on Luciano Nequecaur availability for Stenhousemuir clash

Stranraer hope to have international clearance in time to field Argentinian striker Luciano Nequecaur against Stenhousemuir at Stair Park.

The Blues have a lengthy injury list with David Barron (hamstring), Liam Rowan (knee), Steven Bell (foot), Lee Mair (groin), Chris Aitken (calf) and Peter McGill (foot) all on the sidelines although Craig Malcolm could be on the bench after a knee injury.

Manager Brian Reid said: "Luciano has looked good in training and bounce games and will be a good addition so I hope clearance comes through in time.

"Stenhousemuir had a stunning comeback against Peterhead last weekend and showed a very dangerous side to their game. We need to guard against that."

Stenhousemuir are without the banned Jon Robertson as well as the injured Ciaran Summers (groin) and Allan Smith (hip) with last weekend's match-winner Kieran Millar struggling with a knock.

Euan Murray is available after injury with manager Brown Ferguson hoping that his men have taken confidence from last weekend's 4-3 success over Peterhead, who led 3-0 after 38 minutes.

Ferguson said: "Stranraer beat us in a cup tie at the start of the season and we won the first league game so it will be tight.

"The players were terrific in the second half last weekend and really put in a rousing performance that will give them confidence that should be used in this game."
