Manager Brian Reid says all the pressure will be on Stranraer's opponents in tonight's play-off clash.

The Blues welcome Livingston to Stair Park for the first leg of their Championship Play-off semi-final (kick-off 7:45pm).

Livingston finished ninth in the Championship last season - five places above Stranraer in the Scottish football pyramid, so Reid believes it will be the visitors instead of his players feeling the heat.

The second leg takes place at Livingston on Saturday (kick-off 3pm).

Scotland's Rugby World Cup off to winning start

Scotland on the attack against Japan Credit: Press Association

Scotland cruised to a comfortable victory in their Rugby World Cup opener against Japan.

The Scots - with Borderers Stuart Hogg, Greig Laidlaw and Ross Ford in the starting lineup - racked up five tries in a 45-10 win.

Japan, who caused one of the biggest shocks in sporting history beating double world champions South Africa on Saturday, got off to a positive start and went in at half-time only four points behind.

After the interval though Scotland's attack proved too hot to handle with John Hardie, Mark Bennett (two), Tommy Seymour and Finn Russell all touching down.

Scotland's next game is against the United States at Elland Road in Leeds on Sunday.
