Stranraer v Inverness preview

Stranraer are without two injured players as they prepare for the visit of Inverness Caley in the fifth round of the Scottish Cup.

Marc Corcoran has a hip problem and Chris Aitken is suffering from an ankle injury ahead of the Stair Park clash.

The Blues are hoping to claim their second Scottish Premiership scalp of the campaign, having already beaten Ross County in the League Cup.

Inverness skipper Richie Foran will be on the bench for the trip to the borders, as the 33-year-old returns from a shoulder injury sustained on 21 December.

Josh Meekings is available after winning his appeal against his League Cup semi-final red card while fellow centre-back Gary Warren's suspension only counts in the final of that competition.

Caley Thistle go into the tie in buoyant mood having beaten Hearts in that League Cup semi-final with nine men.
