Match Preview

Stirling duo doubtful for crunch clash Stirling Albion have injury doubts over Marc McCulloch and Darren Smith as they look to move off bottom spot and send visitors Albion Rovers to the foot of the table. Shaun Dillon will miss out with an ankle problem and Scott Davidson misses out through suspension, however Brian Allison is available after a two game ban. Greig McDonald's side go into their basement battle on the back of an away win at Brechin in midweek and the Stirling boss said: "We were good value for that success and it is great to be going into a big game like this one with that behind us." "We have a terrific chance of moving off bottom spot for the first time in 10 games and fully intend to take it." Albion Rovers' manager Paul Martin is expected to return to the helm for the crunch relegation clash after four weeks away from games due to illness. Martin's only concern on the playing front is player-assistant manager Todd Lumsden, who is out with a calf problem. Michael O'Byrne will return from suspension to take his place in the centre of the Coatbridge side's defence. Lumsden said: "This is a massive game for us but we believe we have the players that can handle it. "If we show the same level of fight and work-rate that we displayed against Forfar last week when we battled back twice for a point then we will have a great chance of getting our first win of the season over Stirling Albion."

Match Report

Cook inspires Stirling Stirling defender Alan Cook scored twice to help his side defeat fellow strugglers Albion 3-0. The away side came into the game without a win in nine games and fell behind after 20 minutes to Cook's first goal of the afternoon, a thumping drive from the edge of the area. The Binos doubled their lead three minutes later when Graham Weir headed the ball to Kevin Kelbie who fired in from 12 yards. Albion's best chance to get back into the game fell to John Gemmell who headed Alan Reid's cross against the post after 73 minutes. A great afternoon for Greig McDonald's men was rounded off 12 minutes from time when Cook applied the finish to Craig McLeish's cross as the Forthbank team recorded back-to-back league wins for only the second time this season.
