Stranraer v Albion Rovers Preview

Stranraer badgesaitken1314smallPETROFAC TRAINING CUP SECOND ROUND:


(Tuesday, August 19: Stair Park, 7.45pm)

Stevie Aitken says Stranraer's focus is on reaching the quarter-finals of the Challenge Cup for the first time since 2001.

The Blues host Albion Rovers on Tuesday night looking to bounce back from the 4-0 League One thrashing at Morton.

And Aitken believes League Two Rovers, who appointed former Aberdeen midfielder Darren Young as player/manager in June, will be tricky opponents.

"Rovers are always a tough team to play against and this tie will not be any different," said the manager.

"They have a new management team so everyone will still be finding their feet and all of the players will be looking to impress.

"Clubs have perhaps not thought of the competition as being financially gaining but with the teams now involved I think attitudes have changed.

"We will be using our squad wisely over the next couple of weeks as the games are coming thick and fast.

"We have a great opportunity to get into the quarter-finals and we want to go as far as we can."

Aitken confirmed that midfielder Steven Bell will be unavailable until at least the end of September as he recovers from an ankle injury.

The Blues include keeper David Mitchell and defender Barry Russell as their suspension following their red cards on Saturday at Morton will be served this coming weekend against Brechin.
