The Warriors are back on the road again this week and are also heading back down to the south west, only this time to face Stranraer.

The boys go into this one full of confidence after a positive result against Cove Rangers which was followed up with our first win of the season away to Annan Athletic. Our hosts on the other hand will be looking to bounce back after defeat to Edinburgh City last time out.

This encounter is set to be a close one, with both sides locked together on 5 points in the table. A win for either side could see them climb as high as 6th.

Warriors TV spoke to Stephen Swift this week, “Everybody’s happy after the result last week. It’s probably been the worst that we’ve played but we got the three points. We asked the boys a few questions at half time of their character and they responded. It’s also pleasing that we never played well but we got the result and I think that’s stemming from the foundation against Cove where we were up against a very good team and we got a clean sheet. We’ve built from there and hoping that the foundations are set and we can move on and get a couple of good results.

“We expect youthfulness and energy from Stranraer. They have a few players on loan from Cove and Kilmarnock and have a centre back pairing that done very well last year. They’ve got a good blend of youth and experience and it’s always a tough test down at their place. We know it’s going to be a tough game, but we feel that we’ve set our foundation and if we continue with that steel within the team them it will stand us in good stead.

“With Crighton and Tapping coming back, we now have a massive headache and not just with the starting 11, but the full matchday squad. It’s a good headache to have though. We have four quality centre backs in Corbett, Jamieson, Crighton and Tapping and we’ve just told them tonight that if you get the shout, you need to take it because there’s always someone breathing down your neck and that’s the nature of our squad.

“James Lyon has returned to training this week but Daz Christie remains sidelined with a stomach problem and Graeme Smith continues to be ruled out.”

It’s going to be a cracker and the boys need your support! The match is pay at the gate with under 16’s costing £5, senior citizens £10 and adults costing £15. There will be no live stream available for pay per view, so the only way to catch the action is to get down to Stair Park.
