*Subject to 11.00am pitch inspection*
We begin the last quarter of our League 1 campaign with a game against title-chasing Stranraer at Forthbank on Saturday. We are bidding to end a run of seven straight defeats and earn our first home league win of the season.
Team news: Full-back Kevin McKinlay returns after missing the 4-0 midweek defeat against Morton but Steven Doris has been ruled out for the rest of the season. Graham Weir, yet to feature in 2015, could return to the squad after injury.
Opponents: Stranraer slipped to second in the table on Tuesday when they were beaten 1-0 by Stenhousemuir at Ochilview. Stephen Aitken’s side look set for the play-offs, at the very least, for the second season in a row and thrashed Dunfermline 5-1 at Stair Park last weekend. Stranraer’s away record in League 1 is five wins, five draws and three defeats.
Past meetings: It was 1-1 at Forthbank in November when Phil Johnston’s opener was cancelled out by Steven Bell before half-time. Stranraer won both meetings at Stair Park this season – 2-0 back in September and 1-0 at the end of January.
