No worries for Rovers

Albion Rovers have a fully fit and suspension free squad for the visit of East Fife at Cliftonhill with manager Todd Lumsden looking for a "massive" result against the Fifers.

Lumsden's side went down 3-0 to Morton on Scottish Cup duty in midweek and he is looking for the perfect response from his players.

He said: "The second half in that game was disappointing but we have the chance to bounce right back. East Fife are below us in the table and I want them to stay there for as long as possible.

"A win would be a massive result as it moves us towards mid-table and also set us up positively for two more crucial home games against East Fife and Brechin City in the next week."

Recently appointed East Fife manager Billy Brown is again without an injured quartet.

Jordan Forster, Darren McCormack, Gareth Wardlaw and Paul McManus all remain on the sidelines.

Brown said: "I was disappointed with the performance from the players in the first half against Alloa last weekend where we could have been more than the one goal down.

"We were a lot better in the second half and with a bit of luck we could have got even. That second 45 minutes has given us something to build on for the Albion Rovers game.

"We are low on numbers which means that I cannot make a lot of changes but hopefully the changes I do make will bring us a win."
