Match Preview

Plenderleith blow for Stenny Stenhousemuir will be without Grant Plenderleith when Arbroath visit Ochilview. The young midfielder is starting a four-game ban incurred when he was on-loan last season at junior side Bo'ness. Goalkeeper Ally Brown will not feature due to a thigh knock and centre-half Ross McMillan is a doubt. The Warriors are out to make up for a disappointing start to their season at Brechin last Saturday, with assistant manager Kevin McGoldrick saying: "We had an opportunity to win last week at Glebe Park and never took it. "We want our season to get going now and the players have been asked to make it happen, as if we stand off Arbroath, they have players that can hurt us." Arbroath are without striker Steven Doris as he completes the final game of his two-match ban. Australian defender Beau Busch is set to feature after missing out last weekend through injury, however Kieran McAnespie and Jordan Elverson are both facing a race against time to feature. Gayfield boss Paul Sheerin is warning his men to be wary and said: "Everyone is desperate to do well in their home games so I expect Stenhousemuir to really come at us in this game. "After meeting Albion Rovers, who were in the Third Division with us last season, this is our first game against an established Second Division side so I am looking forward to seeing how we match up."

Match Report

Warriors ease to win Goals either side of half-time gave Stenhousemuir a 2-0 Irn-Bru Second Division victory over Arbroath. Paul Sheerin tried to catch out Chris McCluskey with an early long-range effort but the Stenhousemuir stopper was alert to save. Instead it was the hosts that took the lead after 13 minutes. Paul McHale hung up a cross for his midfield partner Brown Ferguson who steered a header into the bottom corner. The hosts were controlling the play and extended their lead early in the second half through Andy Rodgers. The ball broke for the striker inside the area and he shot beyond the reach of Darren Hill in the Arbroath goal. Rodgers could have netted a spectacular second soon after but miscued with his overhead kick. Gavin Swankie came closest to pulling a goal back for the visitors by drawing a fine save out of McCluskey, but the Warriors were rarely troubled as they held out for three points.
