Match Preview

Albion hope for young keeper Albion boss Paul Martin is hopeful of adding Hibs` young shot-stopper Thomas Flynn to his squad for the home game with East Stirling. Should the deal be concluded in time, the 20-year-old will take his place between the sticks in place of the suspended Derek Gaston. On-loan Motherwell midfielder Steven Lawless returned to training on Thursday night and has been added to the party but Martin will wait on the result of a fitness test on striker John Gemmell before finalising his side. The promotion-chasing Coatbridge side have won only once in six games but Martin is refusing to panic. He said: "Results may not have been good but our performances have been. If we take our chances we will win more games, it really is as simple as that." East Stirling captain Dean Richardson is rated doubtful for the clash. Richardson sustained a head knock against Queen's Park last week and will be assessed but midfielder David Dunn is expected to take part despite a back problem. Assistant head coach David Nicholls said: "We will give Dean every chance we can to make it, although with a head knock you have to be extra careful. With a glut of games coming up there is no need to risk him longer term." The Shire were poor last weekend as they lost 2-0 to the Spiders with Nicholls added: "We have put that down to getting expelled from the Scottish Cup so we are expecting an improvement against Albion Rovers."

Match Report

Rovers boost in promotion push Albion Rovers enhanced their promotion prospects with a comfortable 2-0 victory over East Stirling. Goals from Robert Love and Steven Canning helped Paul Martin's side close the gap on leaders Arbroath to just two points. The hosts signalled their intentions early on when they forced a string of saves from Michael Andrews, who denied Love, Canning and Peter Innes in quick succession. But the Wee Rovers were not to be denied and Love eventually found a way past Andrews on 21 minutes when he connected with John Gemmell's header to turn it in from 12 yards. East Stirling's task was made even harder when eight-goal top scorer Kevin Cawley was dismissed late on after picking up two bookings in three minutes. And Albion made the advantage count when Canning doubled the lead in injury-time with a shot from the edge of the box.
