Match Preview

Chaplain resumes normal service Bottom-of-the-table Albion Rovers welcome back midfielder Scott Chaplain following a two-game ban as they look to record only their second win of the season. But manager Paul Martin is still without injured pair Ciaran Donnelly and Danny Ferry through injury and defenders Alan Reid and Todd Lumsden, plus striker Chris Boyle and John Gemmell all require late fitness tests. Martin said: "Arbroath may have adapted to the Second Division quicker than we have, but our players can take confidence from how close we were to them last season. "Our next win is crucial and will change our season and it would be great to get it in this game." Arbroath player/manager Paul Sheerin will miss out due a knee injury. The Red Lichties boss, the only absentee from his squad, is not getting taken in by his opponents' lowly position at the foot of the table. Sheerin said: "I saw Albion in midweek at Dumbarton and I thought they were unlucky to get beaten. "They probably held the upper hand over us last season in games in the Third Division and beat us 3-0 the last time we were there, so this will be a really tough game. "It's not the greatest of grounds to go to and our players will need to have the right approach if we are to take the three points."

Match Report

Gemmell gives Albion win John Gemmell's first goal of the season gave bottom-placed Albion a 1-0 victory over Arbroath. Gemmell broke the deadlock in the 13th minute when he latched onto Christopher Boyle's through ball before drilling a low right-footed effort past Arbroath goalkeeper Darren Hill from 12 yards out. Hill then tipped Anthony Stevenson's 25-yard driven effort round the post in the 26th minute. Two minutes into the second half Hill was again on hand to deny Gemmell his second goal of the game with a great save after Gemmell had volleyed Boyle's cross goalwards. Arbroath's best opportunity to equalise fell to Gavin Swankie but he saw his 58th-minute volley fantastically saved by Derek Gaston. The Albion keeper also kept out Kieran McAnespie's header late on as the home side held on for the points.
