Match Preview

Murray return mint for Warriors Stenhousemuir will be without defender Martyn Corrigan and midfielder Eric Paton against second-placed Arbroath. But winger Stevie Murray could return after dislocating his elbow last month. The Warriors sit in a play-off spot, but assistant manager Kevin McGoldrick said: "If you offered us fourth place at the start of the season most people would have taken it, but we have been very inconsistent and that has been annoying us all. "We win one and then lose one and we will remain frustrated until that ends." "We have beaten Arbroath at our place and also gave them a really good run for their money at Gayfield so if we play like we can, we can win this one." Arbroath will check on injury doubts Mark Baxter, Beau Busch and Collin Samuel ahead of the trip. Back-up goalkeeper Michael White and striker Jordan Elfverson remain out with knocks. Player-manager Paul Sheerin said: "The way games are scheduled we can go top if we win this won and win against Airdrie in midweek regardless of what Cowdenbeath do against Brechin. "While we know what is at stake all of our attention has been focused on Stenhousemuir who gave us a really hard time of things earlier in the season at their place when they beat us 2-0. We are on a good run and we want that to continue."

Match Report

Falkingham fires up Smokies Josh Falkingham scored a brace as Arbroath beat Stenhousemuir 3-1 at Ochilview Park. The visitors took the lead in the ninth minute when Steven Doris netted from inside the area after good work by Brian Kerr. Falkingham doubled the advantage eight minutes before the interval with a fine left-footed strike from the edge of the area. Kevin McKinlay's speculative drive was the closest the home side came to an equaliser in the first half, his effort well saved by Darren Hill. The hosts did pull a goal back in the 70th minute, Stewart Kean on hand to fire home Andy Rodgers' cross. But Falkingham all but ensured victory when he added his second and the Smokies' third two minutes from time. Victory moves Paul Sheerin's side within two points of league leaders Cowdenbeath whilst the Warriors remain in the play-off positions.
