Match Preview

Arbroath duo return Arbroath manager Paul Sheerin welcomes back the experienced pair of Kieran McAnespie and Jim Hamilton after knocks for the visit of East Stirling. Keith Gibson, Alan Rattray and Steven Doris remain sidelined through injury Sheerin is looking for a better defensive display from his team who lie second bottom off Irn Bru Division Three after shipping eight goals in three outings so far. "We are simply conceding far too many goals and the three last week at Montrose really hurt us, especially in a local Derby," he said. "It is important to get back to winning ways as soon as possible as the league is still very packed together at the moment. "I was hoping to bring someone in to help us in defence but I have run out of time." East Stirlingshire midfielder Paul Weaver is banned for the trip to Gayfield, however everyone else is available to boss Jim McInally. Spirits are high at the Shire after two consecutive wins and assistant David Nicholls is delighted with the attitude shown by their young players. "After winning against Montrose and then Elgin the players are flying high and the team spirit is outstanding. They are full of confidence and a pleasure to be working with just now. "But all the confidence in the world is no good if we allow Arbroath to win and pull level on points. It is early days but the longer we have a gap on Arbroath the better."

Match Report

Swankie gets the ball rolling Arbroath recorded their first home win of the season after beating East Stirling 2-0 at Gayfield Park. Gavin Swankie opened the scoring for the home team in the 27th minute when he fired a right-footed effort past Stirling goalkeeper Michael Andrews from 12 yards. Arbroath had to wait until the 80th minute to double their advantage when David McGowan bundled the ball over the line. Stirling were handed an opportunity to get back into the game just moments later as James Stevenson was hauled down inside the box by Stuart Malcolm, resulting in a penalty. However, Steven Maguire blasted over the bar from 12 yards leaving both teams with six points from the opening four games.
