Rovers sweat on Russell Albion Rovers are hoping that defender Barry Russell can see off an illness that has troubled him all week and take the field against visitors Stenhousemuir. The Coatbridge side are already without goalkeeper Chris McCluskey and defenders Alan Reid, Mick O'Byrne and Kevin Green, and manager Todd Lumsden does not want his numbers depleted further. Lumsden said: "Barry's condition is improving and he has a chance of making it but he has been floored for a few days. "He will only play if he is ready as we need everyone to be strong in this game as Stenhousemuir are a very good side. "They have strength in depth as they showed by winning at Alloa last week but after two wins in a row it is game we are looking forward to." Stenhousemuir striker John Gemmell will miss out on a trip to his former due to suspension. Centre-back Ross McMillan is available after shaking off the knock he picked up in the 2-0 win over Alloa last weekend. Kevin McKinlay is fit again, however the Warriors will be missing Scott Buist who was also injured at Recreation Park and long term victim Eric Paton remains out. Ochilview manager Martyn Corrigan said: "Albion are well known for their battling qualities and they will also have a fair amount of confidence after a couple of wins recently." "Cliftonhill is never an easy place to go to but if we show the same spirit as we did at Alloa than we can pick up another 3 points."
