Stranraer V Airdrieonians at Stair Park - Match Preview

Corcoran major doubt for Stranraer

Stranraer have a doubt over Marc Corcoran ahead of the visit of bottom-of-the-table Airdrie to Stair Park.

Corcoran injured his hamstring during training on Thursday and looks set to join on-loan Aberdeen defender Scott Rumsby, who had groin surgery recently, on the sidelines.

Manager Stephen Aitken said: "Our recent results have lifted expectations on us all and we have to show that we can handle it.

"We cannot just turn up thinking that we're playing well and wins will happen.

"We have to go out and make things happen. We need to go out and keep working as hard as we have been working."

Airdrie are hoping to add Partick youngster Caolan McAleer to their attack if they can complete the loan deal before kick-off.

At the other end of the pitch the Diamonds will have Andrew Duncan in goal after his dismissal in last Saturday's game against Dunfermline was downgraded to a caution following a successful appeal.

On-loan Rangers keeper Scott Gallacher remains sidelined with a knee problem, while Chris O'Neill (groin), Grant Drummond (knee) and Grant Evans (knee) are also ruled out.

Manager Gary Bollan said: "Stranraer will be difficult opponents as they are playing well and scoring a lot of goals.

"But I want us to go out and put them under pressure defensively."
