Scott Booth will tell his players to recapture the spirit of their last visit to Ibrox when Rangers come calling to Ochilview tomorrow.

The Warriors came from behind to secure a 3-3 draw with the runaway League One champions in February

shortly before Booth took charge.

The Glasgow club now have little to play for other than pride, but the Warriors are still hoping they can secure a play-off place.

But with only three matches remaining, Stenny lie in fifth place – equal on points with Ayr United but with an inferior goal difference and having played a game more.

Rangers have not lost a league game all season but Booth insists his team have to go for victory.

“It’s game that we have to try and win,” he said. “I’m not saying we’ll be going gung-ho, but we’ll be looking to take points.

“I watched the last performance at Ibrox and it was a real credit to the players. They played with real desire and some of the football was really good to watch.

“We have to take the game to Rangers in a similar way this weekend, working hard to keep possession and making sure we take any chances that come our way.”

Eddie Malone will miss Saturday’s game and may not return to fitness before the season’s end. Kevin McKinlay is rated as a doubt but made a return to training last night.
