After last weeks win over Albion Rovers at Central Park we play the first of two successive away games on Saturday afternoon when we meet Stenhousemuir at Ochilview Park with a 3 p.m. kick off.
It will be our first visit to play the Warriors at Ochilview since Boxing Day 2011 when we ran out 2-0 winners thanks to goals from Greg Stewart and Lewis Coult.
Craig Johnston serves the second game of his suspension although new signing from Hamilton Accies Aldin El Zubaidi will come into Colin Nish's squad.
