Arbroath have ended their search for a striker by bringing their former front man Steven Doris back to the club on a loan deal from Dundee.

Ricky Little and Connor Birse continue to be out for the Red Lichties who need a win to close the 10 point gap that their visitors hold in the search for a play-off place.

Gayfield player/ boss Paul Sheerin said: “Steven will be involved at some point against Stranraer. We need goals to win games and I would much rather be 7 points behind Stranraer and chasing a play-off place than 13.”

Stranraer, who have won their last three away league games, welcome back on-loan Aberdeen defender Scott Rumsby after 2 months of absence following groin surgery.

Striker Martin Grehan misses out through suspension and Marc Corcoran is missing as his pelvic injury is continuing to cause problems.

Stair park boss Stephen Aitken said: “The players know that they let their standards slip against Clyde last weekend and that we are lucky still to be in the Scottish Cup.”

“They have been great for most of the season and are looking to get back to the high standards they are capable of when we meet Arbroath.”
