Match Preview

Full squad for Chapman Annan manager Jim Chapman has a full squad to choose from against Stirling with the only concern for the Galabank boss being injured pride. Stirling raced into a three-goal half-time lead in the first leg before David Hopkirk's goal gave the Black and Gold's a better chance at 3-1 with Chapman saying: "There was a lot of hurt in our dressing room at the interval as the players knew they were not at the races. "We were better in the second and got ourselves back into things. Hopefully that wounded pride will inspire the boys to put things right, although it will not be easy against a strong Stirling side." Stirling Albion's only doubt is midfielder Darren Smith who suffered a knock in the first meeting that saw him substituted in the second half. Forthbank manager Greig McDonald is taking nothing for granted despite his side's two-goal advantage as he explained: "We played really well for the first hour and I am pleased to be going to Annan with a lead. However they scored a late goal which was a reminder to us that nothing has been decided. "We will go there and look to add to our advantage as we have players that can hurt Annan. We will have to play well again to do so."
