Stranraer love Winter

A Sean Winter double earned Stranraer all three points as they won 3-1 at Montrose.

It was the hosts who took an early lead, Martin Boyle finding the back of the net after three minutes with a low right-footed effort.

Winter's first strike brought Stranraer level seven minutes before the break as the midfielder latched on to Craig Malcolm's assist before finishing past Sandy Wood in the Montrose goal.

Malcolm then completed the turnaround in the 73rd minute, letting fly from 20 yards and finding the top corner.

Winter scored his fourth goal in two games seven minutes from time, striking home from the edge of the area to send Keith Knox's side back to the top of the table.

Gable Endies wait on Campbell

Montrose defender Alan Campbell faces a Saturday morning fitness test on his injured groin to see if he can take the field against Stranraer at Links Park.

Gable Endies boss Ray Farningham has already ruled out Stephen McNally and Paul Lunan through injury as Montrose look for their first home win for over two months.

Farningham said: "We have picked up four points out of six in our last two away games and it could have been six out of six. We have to win at home to build on that.

"There are goals in our team and there are goals in the Stranraer team but if we can shut up shop at the back I am sure we can win this one."

Stranraer have everyone fit and available for their trip north with the exception of midfielder Chris Aitken who is continuing to recover from a broken metatarsal.

The Blues can go back to the top of the league with a win at Links Park.

Manager Keith Knox said: "It is a very exciting Third Division this season and it would be great for us to go top again after Alloa and Annan both had spells there.

"We won 6-0 at Montrose earlier in the season but that was a bit of a freak result.

"We drew 4-4 at our place after being four goals up and I can assure you we have learned lessons and if we go four ahead this time we will not drop points."
