No worries for Sheerin Arbroath boss Paul Sheerin has a fully-fit and suspension-free squad for the visit of rock-bottom Stranraer as they look to get the win that will lift them into fourth position.
The Red Lichties are on a disappointing run in the league having lost their last three games and Sheerin is out to bring that to an end after seeing his men accept defeat all too easily against table-topping Queen of the South at the weekend.
Sheerin said: "We had competed and played well against the league leaders until we went 3-1 down when there seemed to be a disappointing acceptance that we would not win.
"I am looking for a different approach against a Stranraer side that have had an uplift from a change in manager." Stranraer have lost all five of their away clashes this term and they are without midfielder Chris Aitken for the trip after the 33-year-old had minor surgery on a leg injury recently.
Ryan Borris has been out for the past three games due to a thigh strain but trained this week although Stephen Aitken, who only took on the managerial role last month, reckons that he will not be ready for the clash at Gayfield.
The Blues are looking to bounce back from a disastrous ending to their game with Ayr, who claimed a last-gasp winner despite being down to 10 men.
Arbroath vs Stranraer

Arbroath leave it late to deny Stranraer Steven Doris' 92nd-minute winner denied Stranraer their first away point of the season as Arbroath snatched a 2-1 victory.
Stranraer, the Second Division's bottom club, went into the encounter having lost all five of their games on the road so far this term, scoring just twice in the process.
And following an entertaining start to proceedings in which both sides threatened, Stranraer's hopes of breaking their duck did not look promising as Paul Currie volleyed home well from the edge of the area to hand Arbroath the lead in the 23rd minute.
Derek Holmes headed against a post as the home side almost doubled their lead immediately.
And the miss proved costly just two minutes into the second half as Robert Love converted Sean Winter's left-wing cross from close range to level matters.
