Match Preview

Fagan return for Binos Stirling welcome back midfielder Shaun Fagan against second-placed Arbroath although manager Greig McDonald has a number of selection challenges to wrestle with. Shaun Dillon looks set to miss out with an ankle injury and Brian Allison's knee problem keeps him on the sidelines, while Craig McLeish, Alan Cook, Joshua Flood and Andy Hunter all face a race against time to be fit. McDonald said: "It's looking like we will be a bit stretched for the first of eight cup finals that we face between now and the end of the season. "Arbroath have held the upper hand over us this season but we have not had any luck against them and hopefully that will change in this game." Second-placed Arbroath welcome back Craig Wedderburn from suspension as they look to complete a clean sweep over their opponents. Striker Jordan Elfverson misses out with a back problem, though, as Arbroath aim to close the four-point gap on leaders Cowdenbeath with a fourth victory of the season over their struggling hosts. Player/manager Paul Sheerin said: "The Second Division is an incredible league as every single team still has something to play for and that looks like being the case until the end of the season. "Stirling will be out to keep pushing away from the bottom and we need a win to keep close to Cowdenbeath so it should be a good game. "We had a good win over Dumbarton last week but just as important as the win was the clean sheet as we have not had one of those in a while."
