Trio out for Shire

Table-topping East Stirling will be without Nathan Shepherd, Rhys Devlin and Michael Herd against Albion.

Shepherd and Devlin have knee injuries and Herd has a groin problem.

Head coach John Coughlin said: "Albion Rovers assembled a good squad over the summer and they will have been disappointed at losing their last two games. They will be out to make up for that against us so we have to play well"

"We look to be a much improved side from last season but we need to keep winning to prove it."

Barry Russell (ankle), Peter Innes (shoulder) and Kevin Nicoll (hamstring) are all ruled out for Rovers.

Coatbridge manager James Ward said: "John Coughlin knows how to build teams that can get out of this Division. After a couple of years of cost cutting he has put together a very experienced group so we will have to play really well to pick up a win.

"We have had reports on how they play and I am confident that we have a plan in place that can stop them."
