Scott Booth will tell his players to add to Stranraer’s recent losing streak when they travel south to Stair Park tomorrow.

The new Warriors boss will make the trip in confident mood after winning his first home game in charge 4-2 against Brechin City last Saturday.

In contrast, Stranraer have lost their last three matches and conceded 10 goals in the process - but the Blues still sit third in the SPFL League One table behind Dunfermline Athletic and newly-crowned champions Rangers.

With third and fourth spot still up for grabs, Booth is determined to capitalise on his solid start as Stenny manager and urge his players to push their way back into play-off contention.

“Stranraer is never an easy place to go, and they are a difficult side to play against,” he told Heraldsport.

“But they’ve had a tough time of it recently, and that’s something I’ll be making sure the players are aware of.

“The club might have struggled their in the past, but as far as I’m concerned, we’ll take this game on its own merit.”

Booth has a full squad to choose from, with striker John Gemmell back in contention for a starting place.
