Match Preview

Maguire missing for Shire East Stirling will be without striker Stephen Maguire for their contest with league leaders Arbroath. Maguire was shown a red card after the final whistle in the midweek defeat by Annan Athletic so will sit out through suspension. Also missing for the Shire will be defenders Darren Kelly and Dean Richardson with Alex Walker facing a race to be fit with assistant head coach David Nicholls looking for an improvement after Tuesday's 5-1 loss. Nicholls said: "Our first half performance was unacceptable and we asked the boys to restore some confidence in the second half and they did that with a much better showing. "We are on a bad run and really need a win and hopefully the players will go into this game lifted by our 5-3 success at Gayfield in January." League leaders Arbroath have a number of concerns for the trip. Alan Rattray, Stuart Malcolm and Kieran McAnespie have all been ruled out with Ross Chisholm and Danny Griffin rated as having only a 50/ 50 chance of featuring. Gayfield player-boss Paul Sheerin is not being taken in by the Shire's 5-1 defeat in midweek to Annan. He said: "That could work against us as Jim McInally and David Nicholls will have their side really fired up for our game. They defeated us 5-3 not long ago at our place so I know how dangerous a side East Stirling can be. Topping the table means you are a target so we have to show that we can handle that."

Match Report

Gavin is too Swankie for Shire Gavin Swankie's hat-trick helped Arbroath take another step towards an immediate return to the Scottish Second Division as they beat East Stirling 5-2. The Division Three leaders had to come from behind, though, with Kevin Crawley's smart finish giving the home team the advantage after 27 minutes. The sides went into the break all square after Ross Chisholm headed home from 12 yards following good work by Adam Strachan. A Steven Doris header put the visitors ahead before Swankie grabbed the first of his treble five minutes later, smashing into the top corner from 12 yards out. He slotted in his second with 12 minutes remaining before the home side pulled a goal back thanks to a 25-yard screamer from Craig Scott after 82 minutes. But Swankie wrapped up all three points for Arbroath when he completed his hat-trick in injury time.
