Match Preview

Stirling at full strength Stirling defender Ross McGeachie has been passed fit to give boss Greig McDonald a complete squad to choose from as they commence battle with Annan. McDonald said: "Annan qualified for the play-offs a few weeks ago and have tried a few things out with their team since then. "We have come into them in a different way having won five out of six games and it will be interesting to see which way is best. "There has been very little between the sides in the games this season with a win apiece and two draws so I am fairly sure nothing will be decided in this first leg." Annan midfielder Matty Flynn returns from suspension to give manager Jim Chapman a fully-fit and suspension-free squad to select from. Chapman reckons that neither side will be able to pull off a surprise move and the winner will be the team who makes the fewest mistakes. He explained: "We know each other really well and cannot introduce anything at this stage that will surprise the other. It is no longer league football we are playing where mistakes can possibly be caught up. "The team that makes the fewest mistakes and is the most competitive will go through."
