Stranraer vs Ross County Lineups, Analysis, and Latest Team News

Stranraer

Stranraer steadied their sinking ship last March to avoid relegation with a series of positive results at the end of last season. Not just that but all important players stayed put this summer and if anything Stranraer are a bit stronger as they added 2 quality strikers (Armour and Hughes) to their ranks.

Captain Gallagher has recovered from illness and should be involved. Goalkeeper McDonald continues rehabilitation though and he is likely to miss.

Ross County

Ross County were very lucky to stay in the top flight at the end of last season. In the survival playoff vs Partick Thistle, they erased a 2-goal deficit from the first leg to force penalties and eventually win the decisive shootout. Ross struggled for goals all of last season and nothing has been done so far this summer to address that

There are no injury issues reported in the squad but due to the extended nature of last season, most of the regulars are short on fitness as they only this week returned to training.
