Match Preview

Albion take on Elgin at Cliftonhill with manager Paul Martin's squad in the best shape it has been all season. Long-term injury victim Marc Pollock is the only player unavailable. Despite not winning for three home games in a row Martin is looking forward to the visit of the in-form Borough Briggs men. He said: "We have been playing really well so we have nothing to fear going in against Elgin. They will come out and attack us which should make for a great game and if we can convert the chances we have been making we will get things back on track. "With Stranraer losing last Saturday and Arbroath going down in midweek we have not lost too much ground on the leaders and still have a game in hand." Elgin have a doubt over Jamie Duff ahead of the trip. Centre-half Duff went over his ankle in training on Thursday night and needs a late fitness check. The Borough Briggs men defeated league leaders Stranraer last weekend and manager Ross Jack wants his men to build on that in Coatbridge He said: "We were excellent against really strong opponents last weekend and everyone connected with Elgin was delighted with the result. "We need to be at the same standard in this game as well. We played Rovers last month and it was a great game that ended 2-2 and it would be great to be part of another exciting game, but one that we just edge."

Match Report

Albion boost play-off hopes Albion revitalised their promotion bid as goals from Scott Chaplain and John Gemmell gave them a 2-0 win over Elgin. Chaplain handed the hosts an early lead when he slotted home a left-foot shot from Gemmell's knockdown. The visitors had to wait until the hour-mark to test Derek Gaston when Craig Frizzel's curling effort was tipped wide by the Albion keeper. The home side grabbed a second goal with nine minutes left when Gemmell lashed home from just inside the box. Elgin were handed a lifeline when Alan Reid was adjudged to have fouled Neil MacDonald in the area a minute later, but Jason Crooks' spot-kick was saved by Gaston as Albion secured a first win in five to move to within a point of leaders Arbroath.
