Ally McCoist concedes Rangers face a stern test in aiming to finish their League One campaign unbeaten.

McCoist's side have dropped points in only two of their 32 games, with two draws en route to the league title.

But the Rangers boss, ahead of the trip to Stenhousemuir, warned of the dangers posed by teams vying to secure a place in the play-offs.

"We've got four tough league matches left now against teams who have got everything to play for," he said.

Rangers will also face Ayr, Stranraer and Dunfermline before the end of their League One campaign, with the Pars assured of a play-off place.

"Looking at the opposition we've got in the next few games, they've all got a lot to play for themselves," added McCoist.

"I would be very optimistic the games will be competitive and from our point of view, that's the target.

"It'll be extremely difficult because not only are those teams fighting for play-off positions, they'll want to be the first team to beat us in the league and they'll see us as a scalp."

Stenhousemuir secured a 3-3 draw when the sides met on league duty at Ibrox earlier this season.

And McCoist is expecting another tough encounter at Ochilview.

"It was a difficult game last time and it will be a difficult game tomorrow. They probably can't believe they only took one point from the game," he said.

"They scored three goals and there was one heck of a big difference from the last time they were at Ibrox in the league.

"It's a tough place to go and it's not ideal but they will be fighting for everything. There will be a real edge to the game.

"They will be fighting on two fronts, both because they want to be the first team to beat us in the league and because they want to maintain their challenge for a play-off position."
