The rest of the Blues squad is available to manager Stephen Aitken who is looking for his men to up their game against the Wasps.
Aitken said: ``We know Alloa well as we came up from the Third Division together but our recent results against them have been disappointing.
``It would be good to get a win as one is overdue. To do that we need to raise our level of performance as they are a top side.
``Our home form in the league has been decent so we can build on that to try and get the three points.''
Second-placed Alloa travel with Darryl Meggat and Eddie Ferns added to the squad that inflicted a first league defeat of the season on Queen of the South in midweek.
Captain Darren Young is struggling with a groin problem and Recreation Park boss Paul Hartley may look to freshen things up, even though his Wasps played exceptionally well to defeat the Doonhamers 1-0.
Hartley explained: ``We were not expected to beat Queen of the South but now that we have there is an expectation that we will beat Stranraer.
``The players have to handle that and that has made this game the more difficult fixture of the two.
``If we play like we can we will do well but we cannot just turn up and expect to win.''
