Match Preview

Boyle back for Albion Albion Rovers manager Paul Martin looks set to recall Chris Boyle to his midfield after injury for the crunch clash with table-topping Arbroath. However, Alan Reid and John Gemmell still remain sidelined, with on-loan Motherwell duo Steven Lawless and Peter Innes both rated doubtful. Martin explained how vital victory was for his side, saying: "If we win we continue to have the destiny of the championship in our hands." He added: "Saturday's 3-1 win over Stranraer was the first game this season where we have come back from a goal down to win a game and the players are approaching this one in good spirits as a result." Arbroath player-manager Paul Sheerin welcomes back captain Stuart Malcolm after suspension for the trip. Full-back Kieran McAnespie could return after a knock, but centre-back Alan Rattray remains sidelined with a knee injury. The importance of a win is not lost on Sheerin, who said: "All the games just now are massive and this is probably the biggest of the season so far for us. "The results at the weekend tightened everything up again at the top and Albion Rovers will see this as a great chance to lay down a marker about their own title ambitions. "It really is the business end to the season and we are looking forward to it."M
