Match Preview

Trialist to play in Albion goal Albion Rovers will have David Crawford in goal as a trialist for the visit of Forfar. Regular number one Derek Gaston cannot play as he was injured in the challenge that saw him red-carded against Arbroath last week, though that red has since been overturned. Back-up goalkeeper Chris Fahey was not successful in his appeal to have his dismissal in the same game rescinded and he misses out. Todd Lumsden is in line to make his comeback after injury and Scott Chaplain is available after a ban, however Allan Dempsie and Mick O'Byrne miss out through injury while John Gemmell is suspended. Rovers boss Paul Martin said: "To have Derek unavailable because of an injury he sustained in a challenge he was sent off for is like rubbing salt into a wound." Forfar will be without on-loan goalkeeper Grant Adam after he was recalled by parent-club Rangers. Adam's return to Ibrox means Greg Paterson will be between the sticks. Everyone else in the Station Park squad is fit and available to manager Dick Campbell who is planning changes following the 5-0 defeat from Morton in midweek. Assistant manager Ian Campbell said: "There will definitely be changes after that game as there is nothing like a heavy defeat to really focus the mind. "We will be out to make up for that as it was nowhere near good enough and we have to get back on the rails quickly. "We will need to play well as Paul Martin will have his side fired up for this one."

Match Report

Love is all Albion need Robert Love snatched a late winner to give Albion a 1-0 win over Forfar. Both sides were looking for an upturn in fortunes after the Wee Rovers were thrashed 6-2 by Arbroath last week and Forfar suffered a 5-0 demolition at the hands of Morton in Tuesday's Ramsdens Challenge Cup encounter. There were plenty of chances at the Cliftonhill Stadium but neither side could take advantage in the first-half. James Gilmartin nodded an early effort over the bar for the hosts and Loons' Kevin Motion hit a tame shot wide. Ciaran Donnelly and Andrew Scott both headed over as Albion continued to pose problems in the air. In the second-half, Scott skewed a close-range drive wide and Gilmartin was again off target with a header. Albion goalkeeper David Crawford then parried Christopher Templeman's goalward prod in the 83rd minute before substitute Love finally broke the deadlock six minutes later by slotting in Larry Acqua's cross.
