Match Preview

Burns concern for Queens Queen of the South will be without injured midfielder Paul Burns for the game against Stirling. However, Bob Harris makes his return from suspension and club captain David Lilley is also free of a ban, although he is an injury doubt. Manager Kenny Brannigan is looking for his men to build on their fine 4-0 win over Morton at the weekend. He said: "That was a great result and performance and we have given ourselves a platform to chase the teams ahead of us. "The last time we played Stirling it was a goalless draw and they have improved since then so I am not taking anything for granted." Stirling Albion are short of defensive cover for the trip after defender Greig McDonald suffered an Achilles injury at the weekend. He joins the injured pair of goalkeeper Callum Reidford and defender Martyn Corrigan on the sidelines. To add to manager Jocky Scott's selection worries, Jonathan Brown and Scott Robertson are both suspended. However, the recently appointed boss was in upbeat mood, and said: "Our performances are improving all the time and a win for Stirling Albion is not far away. "Queen of the South got a great result at the weekend and will be determined to build on that, but getting the first goal and taking confidence from that could be crucial for our players and hopefully we can do that at Palmerston."

Match Report

Smith denies Doonhamers Struggling Stirling claimed a precious point against Queen of the South courtesy of a hard-earned 2-2 draw at Palmerston Park. Chris Aitken's early goal ended the Binos` run of four games without a goal, but they threw away their lead before snatching a share of the spoils in the closing stages. The deadlock was broken in the 17th minute when Aitken turned home Tom Brighton's cross from close range. But Kenny Brannigan's side, who notched four against Morton at the weekend, hit back after the break with Colin McMenamin grabbing the equaliser from inside the box before Ryan McGuffie's long-range effort put the hosts in front. Stirling were not to be denied, though, and when Brighton played in Gordon Smith, the 20-year-old made no mistake from inside the six-yard box.
