Stranraer welcome defender Mark Staunton back from suspension as they host Brechin City at Stair Park with only defender David MacGregor ruled out with a knee injury.
The Stair Park side have scrambled their way into eighth place after a slow start to the season and manager Stephen Aitken is determined that they stay there.
Aitken said: ``We have a really tough game against Brechin and then go to East Fife on Tuesday. We have our noses in front just now and I want that to be case after these two games.''
``We were disappointing last week when we lost to Alloa but we will bounce back. I watched Brechin in midweek when they defeated East Fife 6-0 and they were terrific. We will need to play well to take anything.''
Brechin will look to move ever closer to a play-off place with a win and manager Ray McKinnon will finalise his side after a fitness test on Gareth Rodger's injured hamstring.
The Glebe Park side will be without Jonathan Brown and Ewan Moyes who have ankle injuries and Craig Molloy who has a knee problem with Gary Fusco missing through a ban.
McKinnon's side bounced back from two defeats in three days from champions Queen of the South to hammer East Fife and he said: ``The boys are flying again and confidence has been fully restored. We will need that confidence as Stranraer are strong at home and fighting for everything.
``It is an important game for them but it is just as important for us.''
