From the Dugout

saitken1314smallStevie Aitken says Stranraer are giving everything in their bid to reach the League One promotion play-offs.
The Stair Park boss was full of praise for his players in the wake of Saturday's 2-1 defeat at home to Brechin City.
Alan Trouten opened the scoring for the visitors, who are now safe from the relegation zone, before Andy Stirling equalised for the Blues.
However, striker Robert Thomson's eighth league goal of the season clinched it for the Angus men and extended Stranraer's winless run to eight games.
Aitken is refusing to be downbeat, though, and said: "I thought we played well and dominated for long spells of the match.
"We created lots of chances and it was really frustrating not to take advantage when we were on top.
"We got a good response from the players following the defeat at Arbroath the previous week. There was no lack of effort and I think we lacked a bit of good fortune.
"It's important to remember that we're still in a very strong position and qualifying for the play-offs is in our own hands."
Surprise package Stranraer remain in third place and retained their three-point gap over Stenhousemuir who sit just outside the top four.
Aitken added: "It will go to the wire. We're staying positive and where we are at the moment is down to the hard work of the players over the course of this season."
