Match Preview

Lumsden in Rovers Return Albion Rovers player-assistant manager Todd Lumsden is in line for his comeback against Annan Athletic after a calf injury, however striker Marc Pollock remains out injured. The postponement of the Clyde game at the weekend has allowed defenders Alan Benton and Michael McGowan, the midfield trio of Steven Canning, Chris Hamilton and Chris Boyle along with striker John Gemmell to shake off knocks picked up during last Tuesday's 2-1 defeat against Queen's Park and be included in the squad. Cliftonhill boss Paul Martin said: "Annan will come here full of confidence after their late win at Montrose on Saturday, and we are going to be going all out to end a disappointing wee run of two defeats at home so it should be a great game." Annan are out to repeat their 4-1 defeat of Albion back in October and move above the Coatbridge men in the hunt for promotion. The Annan travelling party includes defender Aaron Muirhead and striker David Cox, who are now both free of suspension, with striker Ian Harty a doubt after picking up a knock during Saturday's 1-0 win at Montrose. Manager Harry Cairney said: "I would expect that Paul Martin will have his men fired up to make up for the result at our place and also to get his side moving back up the way in the table. "We kept going against Montrose and turned one point into three and a similar outcome this time would be fantastic."

Match Report

Goalless stalemate for Albion Albion missed out on the chance to close the gap on the leaders after a goalless draw with Annan. The hosts started the night three points off the pace but could not break down a resilient Annan side with the best away record in the division. John Gemmell spurned one of the best chances of the opening exchanges when he blasted over from close range. Both sides struggled to find top gear and Chris Boyle`s mis-directed free-kick summed up a poor first half. Kevin Neilson scored Annan`s winner in their last match at Montrose but even his six-yard header was wayward in the 80th minute. The visitors looked happy to settle for a point, although all three would have sent them level with their opponents.
