Match Preview

Muirhead might miss out Annan's promising defender Aaron Muirhead is a major doubt for the visit of East Stirling after breaking a bone in his hand in last week's 3-2 success at Montrose. The 21-year-old has had a light plaster fitted but manager Harry Cairney may be forced to rule him out. Cairney has also placed strikers Ian Harty and Sean O'Connor in the doubtful category as they battle against hamstring and back injuries respectively. The Galabank side returned to the top of the table last weekend and Cairney knows that staying there will not be easy against the Shire. He said: "They have not won in a while but every game has been tight and they will be looking for their luck to change." East Stirling have star midfielder Andy Stirling missing through suspension for the top-versus-bottom encounter at Galabank. The Shire's striking resources have been depleted with Jordyn Sheerin being ruled out with an ankle knock and Joe Savage remaining out because of cracked ribs. But Scott Maxwell is available. Head coach John Coughlin is looking for his side's first points since the opening day and said: "One win all season does not make for good reading but for a squad assembled very quickly during the summer they have played really well in patches. "If we do that for an entire game and cut out individual errors we will pick up more points soon."

Match Report

Cox brace keeps Annan top A brace from David Cox eased Annan Athletic to a 3-0 victory over East Stirling as they stayed top of the Third Division. Steven Sloan put the home side in front with 10 minutes gone, collecting a cross-field pass from Graeme Bell and drilling the ball into the top corner. Bell was again the provider with the assist for Cox to finish with a header at the near post, and soon after Cox scored his second with another near-post header, this time following a cross from Sloan. The visitors did improve in the second half, but they remain bottom of the league with only one win so far this season.
