Alloa V Stenhousemuir - view commentary, squad, and statistics of the game live.
Full steam ahead for AlloaAlloa manager Paul Hartley has a fully-fit and suspension-free squad for the visit of derby rivals Stenhousemuir.Wasps manager Hartley believes both sides' fans are in for a treat.Hartley said: "This game has a bit of an edge to it as it is a local derby, but also because it's between two sides that like to play football on the ground. We like to attack and so do they."We have had them watched in their last three games so we're going into the game well-prepared, but we also know that we have to play extremely well to take anything from it."The boys battled to get a win over Brechin and we'll need to battle gain to defeat Stenhousemuir.Stenhousemuir will be without suspended defenders Ross McMillan and John Gemmell for the clash.Manager Martyn Corrigan is also missing the experienced Eric Paton, who has a hip injury and Kevin McKinlay, who has a calf problem.Corrigan said: "We'll give it a real go against a side that play in a good passing style. It's a game we're really looking forward to, but the suspensions do not help our plans."The players responded well when John was sent off last weekend against Arbroath and we could have won the game with just the 10 men."If we go about our jobs against Alloa like we did in the second half against Arbroath then we can take something from this game."
