Airdrie in good shape ahead of Stranraer visit

Airdrie host Stranraer and Diamonds boss Gary Bollan has almost a full squad to choose from.

The only player unavailable to Bollan is striker Jim Lister who remains out with a long-term groin problem.

Bollan is looking for his side to build on a fine display that secured a 1-1 draw at Dunfermline last weekend.

He said: "We went to a difficult venue and could have won the game. The level of performance was excellent and it gives us a great platform to build on for the Stranraer game.

"We will need to play well again as Stranraer won at Forfar last weekend and that was a very decent result."

Stranraer will look to win on the road for the second week running but they will try to do so without Scott Robertson and Craig Malcolm, who are both suffering from knee injuries.

Blues boss Brian Reid said: "We changed our shape and personnel at Station Park and it worked well for us and we will look to build on that at Airdrie.

"I have been told that we do not have a good record at Airdrie but we did not have a good record at Forfar and we managed to put that right.

"Hopefully we can do that again although it will be difficult as Airdrie have been strong at home all season."
