It’s been seldom in recent games that Stranraer have kept a clean sheet. The reality is that The Blues have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 6 of their previous 6 clashes, leaking 13 goals during that time. That pattern might not be carried forward into this next game, of course.

Team News: Stranraer
Stranraer boss Stephen Farrell has no fitness concerns whatsoever ahead of this clash owing to a completely healthy group to choose from.
Team News: Queen's Park
Owing to an otherwise healthy group, there is only a single fitness worry for the Queen's Park boss Ray McKinnon to be concerned with. Simon Murray (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) won’t be in action.
In our opinion, Stranraer could find themselves struggling to break down this Queen's Park team who we reckon will manage to get a goal of their own in a winning performance.
We’re going for a very competitive game with a 0-1 victory for Queen's Park at the end of this one.
We’re expecting it to be that close.
