Match Preview

Old foes set for Second Division reunion Arbroath will be missing striker Steven Doris as they take on old Third Division foes Albion. Doris was given his marching orders last weekend against Livingston and now starts a two-match suspension. Manager Paul Sheerin faces an anxious wait before finalising his side as Beau Busch, Craig Wedderburn and Gavin Swankie are all facing fitness tests to determine if they can take part. And Sheerin is hoping last Saturday's 6-0 defeat against Livingston will actually help his side. "It was a disastrous day but hopefully some good will emerge from it as Livingston exposed flaws in our side that had not been unmasked during pre-season," he said. "It also ensured that no-one in Arbroath colours is feeling complacent about a tough season ahead." Arbroath go into the clash having defeated Albion in the race for the Third Division title last season. Rovers will include former Airdrie and Ayr defender Bobby Donnelly as a trialist. Defensive duo Simon Marriot and Todd Lumsden are all out through injury and that has prompted manager Paul Martin to bring Donnelly in. Martin also has other concerns with midfielder Scott Chaplain and striker John Gemmell missing through suspension, however Steven Canning returns from a ban. Despite meeting a side they faced last season, Martin is delighted to be starting Second Division life at Gayfield. He said: "We are beginning a whole new chapter for this club and, while it will be tough, I am delighted to be going to Arbroath again."

Match Report

Two keepers off as Albion are hit for six Albion had both of their goalkeepers sent off as they suffered a 6-2 demolition at the hands of Arbroath. First-choice shot-stopper Derek Gaston was dismissed inside five minutes for a professional foul on Lee Sibanda. Substitute Chris Fahey's first task was to pick Paul Sheerin's penalty out the net. Sibanda doubled the lead for the hosts shortly afterwards with a curling left-footed effort. Chris Boyle incredibly levelled the scores with two close-range efforts in quick succession for the visitors. However, Stuart Malcolm converted a corner seconds after the restart before Kieran McAnespie scored in similar fashion to restore Arbroath's two-goal advantage. Fahey repeated Gaston's error by seeing red for a challenge on Sibanda, and Sheerin powered in his second penalty. Without a recognised goalkeeper, the nine men of Albion held out well until the 80th minute when Lee Bryce completed the scoring with a shot into the bottom corner.
