Stenhousemuir V Stranraer at Ochilview Park - Match Preview

Gemmell back for Warriers

Stenhousemuir welcome back striker John Gemmell from a ban as they look to defeat Stranraer and hope that both Arbroath and Forfar drop points so they can sneak into the play-offs.

The Warriors, who will miss Scott Buist with a knee injury and Brown Ferguson who has an ankle problem, have won their last four games and manager Martyn Corrigan reckons that they can handle the pressure of having to get a win.

Corrigan said: "We have known that we have to win or be out of things for a few games and have come through it.

"The players have relished the challenge and I am sure they will do what they need to do to get us the win.

"Stranraer have a lot to play for as well so it should be a great game."

Stranraer have a fully fit squad as they head to Ochilview looking for the win that will guarantee the Blues Second Division survival.

Despite needing the three points to ensure that they see off East Fife manager Stephen Aitken reckons his opponents are under more pressure.

"It is a must win game for both sides but Stenhousemuir are at home and are expected to beat us," he said. "They also have the harder task as they are dependent on other results whereas we have things in our own hands.

"They are playing just now but they have a bit of added pressure on them now that we do not have. We can go there and play our best and see where things end up."
