A patched-up Peterhead will aim to sink Stenhousemuir and save their promotion dream.

Trailing 2-0 after the first leg, the Blue Toon have it all to do to play League 1 football next season.

A couple of second half headers from Mick Dunlop have the Warriors in command of the tie but the Buchan club will still feel they have a chance.

Balmoor boss Jim McInally will be forced into changes, after Rory McAllister, who missed a first half penalty, was unable to continue at Ochilview due to a hamstring problem.

Jason Brown also came off injured while there are doubts over the fitness of Mason Robertson, who missed Wednesday’s match.

Towering striker Russell McLean finished the first leg as a centre-back, such was Peterhead’s lack of defensive options.

Encouragingly, the Blue Toon have won their last five fixtures on their own patch so finishing the campaign on a real high and joining League 2 title winners Montrose in the third tier could yet happen.
