I am already on Stranraer at 2.05 (21/20) but there is still plenty of value to be had for backing the home side.
I have been on a few times lately at big prices (Brechin home and twice at Cliftonhill) following my write up on the Peterhead game at the start of January.
Stranraer have really tightened up defensively in the past month or two bar the loss at East End Park. They have made a great addition in goalkeeper Cammy Belford from Wrexham on loan. There is also the inspired move of Stephen Bell back to centre half.
Since then The Blues have kept seven clean sheets in 10 games yielding 19 points. They have suffered just one loss in that time at Dunfermline.
The defence is performing so well that Scott Rumsby, arguably one of the stand out defenders in the league last season, cannot get back in the side.
Cairney, Stirling and Gibson are always a threat in midfield and young Kyle Turner has come in the past few games and done very well.
Upfront they are struggling a bit for goals though Craig Malcom is back from injury now and should start on Saturday which may help.
Stenhousemuir have been leaking goals of late and for much of season though a slight note of concern is that Stuart Malcolm is likely to be dropped and Stenny are one of those annoying, inconsistent sides.
Going forward they do have people that can score. That said, they are in awful form and must be worried at the sides below them picking up points.
The head to heads also show that Stranraer won 5-1 last time the sides met on Boxing Day and 5-1 honestly flattered Stenny.
