Match Preview

Dean Richardson and Craig Donaldson are doubts for East Stirling's clash with Berwick. The duo picked up knocks in the Shire's best performance of the season, the 5-3 win over Arbroath on Tuesday. The players will need to lift themselves from Thursday's disappointment at the club being expelled from the Scottish Cup after playing an ineligible player when they defeated Buckie Thistle. Assistant head coach David Nicholls said: "It has been a week of real conflicting emotions as we had the high of a great performance against Arbroath to the low of not going through in the Scottish Cup. "Our tie with Brechin City has gone now so there is no point in letting the disappointment of that affect our league form starting against Berwick." Berwick bad boy Darren Gribben is likely to start on the bench following last week's show of petulance. Gribben threw his jersey at manager Jimmy Crease following his substitution. Winger Fraser McLaren will return from injury while Crease has boosted his options further by signing Alloa's John Grant. He also hopes to include a trialist recently released from a Second Division club. Crease said: "Darren has been in training as normal this week but he is probably going to start on the bench as we played better last weekend after he went off. "East Stirling had a great result at Arbroath in midweek but if we take our chances better than we have been we will do okay."

Match Report

East Stirling extend winning run In-form East Stirling recorded a fifth win in a row as Chris McLeod's own goal secured a 1-0 win over Berwick. Both sides failed to threaten in an unispiring opening 30 minutes, but it was the hosts who snatched the lead after the hapless McLeod could only divert the ball into his own netfrom close range. David Greenhill flashed a shot across the face of goal for the visitors just before the break, before Craig O'Reilly saw a left-foot volley fly wide of Michael Andrews' post shortly after the restart. Berwick goalkeeper Ian McCaldon made a fine stop to keep out Dean Richardson's fierce low strike, while the keeper was again called into action to keep out John Neil's long-range effort. Kevin Motion could have snatched a point for the visitors late on, but he failed to direct a right-foot volley on target when well-placed. Craig Donaldson saw a speculative strike from long range easily gathered by McCaldon with five minutes to go, and that was to be the last piece of goalmouth action as the home side closed out the rest of the game with few alarms to seal the win.
