Match Preview

Quartet missing for City Brechin will again be without Euan Moyes, David McClune, Derek Carcary and Jim Lister as they take on bottom-side Stirling. Gerry McLauchlan and Charlie King could both return for the Glebe Park men who are looking to recover from an injury-time loss to Cowdenbeath at the weekend. Manager Jim Weir said: "We will need to bounce back from that disappointment to get the win we need to boost our play-off chances. "With Dumbarton and Stenhousemuir playing each other as well we will make ground on somebody if we win. "It will not be easy as we had to score late goals to win at Stirling recently. They are fighting for their lives and we will have to match that." Stirling can move level with Albion Rovers at the foot of the Second Division if they win. However, they will be without attacker Scott Davidson following his dismissal at Dumbarton at the weekend. Injuries continue to rule out Marc McCulloch and Andy Hunter, with Brian Allison also out as he serves the second game of a suspension. Manager Greig McDonald said: "I am disappointed with how things turned out at Dumbarton after going a goal up and then losing 4-1 but we will move on. ca "We may have lost to Brechin recently but we ran them really close. We have the chance to draw level with the side immediately above us and that is a great incentive."

Match Report

Binos bash Hedgemen's hopes Bottom side Stirling dented Brechin's play-off hopes with a shock 3-1 win at Glebe Park. The visitors took the lead three minutes before the interval when Alan Cook produced a fine long-range drive to beat Craig Nelson. Mark Ferry doubled the advantage two minutes later to ensure the Binos held a strong position at half-time. Victory was all but ensured just after the hour mark when Gary Thom rose highest to head home Cook's cross. But the Hedgemen responded immediately, Paul McManus on hand to fire home David Crawford's cross after a quick break from the restart. David Crawford came close to reducing the deficit further with 10 minutes remaining, but Sean Fagan threw himself in the way of a stinging effort. The hosts, driven on by Crawford, continued to press, this time denied by a save from Callum Reidford as they held out for all three points.
