Russell boost for Rovers

Struggling Albion Rovers have full-back Barry Russell available to face visitors Forfar after suspension.

Mick O'Byrne continues to miss out with an ankle injury and Tony Stevenson has a knee problem.

The Coatbridge side defeated Stenhousemuir 1-0 away from home on Saturday to make it two wins and a draw in their last four games.

Manager Todd Lumsden said: "Forfar will be coming here smarting at losing to Arbroath at the weekend but we have an air of determination about us as well.

"The boys have battled hard to get us back into things and another win would mean teams would feel us breathing down their necks whilst we have a bit of positive momentum behind us."

Forfar have Michael Bolochoweckyj and Dale Hilson back in their ranks after bans.

Manager Dick Campbell is looking for his men to go back into the play-off zone for 24 hours at least.

The Loons were pushed down into fifth place by Arbroath, who won 4-2 at Station Park on Saturday and Campbell said: "Arbroath are playing on Wednesday and I want to put pressure on them by winning this game and going above them on goal difference.

"It would be the perfect response to losing on Saturday but it will not be easy as Albion are fighting for their lives.

"We have won the three games between us this season and they have all been high scoring but I would settle for 1-0 this time."
