Stranraer with only one league win in the last two months, add Stephen Stirling to their squad to face Arbroath after he was cup-tied and missed out against Inverness Caledonian Thistle in the William Hill Scottish Cup last weekend.

The Blues will again be without the injured Chris Aitken and Marc Corcoran with Aitken prioritising points from this game ahead of the replay with John Hughes’ side on Tuesday.              

Aitken said: “I will think about Inverness only when this game is out of the way. It is important that we get back to picking up points in the league as want to be in the play-offs at the end of the season.”                               

“Arbroath will make this game tough as they are fighting for their lives and we have to match that determination first and foremost.”

Struggling Arbroath add Kenny Deuchar after the striker agreed to come out of retirement to help their relegation fight with Michael Travis added after serving a one match ban.

Recent signing Sandy Wood looks set for his goalkeeping debut as Scott Morrison is injured with midfielder Alan Cook dropping out of things due to suspension.

Player/ manager Paul Sheerin said: “Bringing Kenny in is not that much of a gamble as he knows his way to goal and has kept himself fit. It would be great for him to be giving opponents a hard time in their box and for us to tighten up our own defence.”

“We made some bad mistakes when we lost 3-2 to Ayr a fortnight ago and if we can cut them out of our game then we have a chance at Stranraer.”
