Team News: Stranraer
Stranraer manager Stephen Farrell will be happy not to have any fitness concerns to speak of coming into this game owing to a completely injury-free squad to choose from.
Team News: Edinburgh City
Due to a mostly full-strength group of players, there’s just a single fitness worry for the Edinburgh City manager Gary Naysmith to be concerned with. Kelby Mason (Knock) misses out for this game.
We are of the inclination to think that Edinburgh City and Stranraer could well end up finding themselves level here, with both teams capable of netting.
It appears that a draw might be on the cards. We’re therefore anticipating a tight encounter, finishing with a 1-1 score draw when the full-time whistle blows.
