Stranraer striker Michael Moore is suspended for the visit of fellow promotion hopefuls East Stirlingshire.Fellow forward Craig Malcolm returns following a ban and defender Paul Murphy has shaken off a knock.

Shire could be without five players through injury for the trip to a side who are four points better off.

With Charlie Grant ruled out already, Alex Walker, Dean Richardson, Craig Tully and Craig Donaldson are all now struggling to make the match.

Stranraer manager Keith Knox: "Results went our way last week and we have a bit of breathing space, but we cannot stop.

"There are a lot of tough games coming up and we have to show that we can look after our own interests by defeating an East Stirling side that are playing well just now.

"Our former striker, Kevin Cawley, is scoring a few goals and we will need to keep him quiet to win."

East Stirlingshire assistant manager David Nicholls: "Our results and performances have improved recently, but Stranraer on their own patch will be a real test.

"They have excellent strikers and we need to be able to handle that.

"We want to win this game as we want to keep going in a positive manner until the end of the season."
