DANNY FERRY hopes Albion Rovers' never-say-die attitude will pay dividends as they bid to keep their place in the Irn-Bru Second Division.
Rovers defied the odds to avoid an immediate return to Scotland's bottom tier this season and face Stranraer in the play-off final first leg tonight.
Victory would be a significant achievement for Albion and while Ferry is taking nothing for granted, he admits confidence is high in the Cliftonhill camp ahead of their final clash.
He said: "We are treat-ing the play-offs as a second chance to stay up and to stay in the Second Division.
"A few weeks ago we looked as though we were going to go down but we have got another chance to stay up now.
"We have shown in the Elgin game that we have the fight in us and the confidence to win games.
"We have got a real fighting spirit in us and we know we can win games at this level, like we have all season.
"We have given ourselves a chance and hopefully we can complete the job and stay in the league now.
"Stranraer are going well and they will have plenty of confidence, like we did this time last year.
"Their results in the semi-finals shows what can happen in the play-offs.
"They didn't have a great record against Queen's Park in the league and finished below them in the table but then won both play-off games comfortably.
"The play-offs are a mentality thing. It is about who plays well on the day and whoever does that will come away with a big prize.
"We have been there before and know what we need to do so hopefully we can achieve our aim and stay in the Second Division."
