Match Preview

Albion pair still banned Stirling Albion boss Jocky Scott will lead his side out against his former club Dundee without the banned pair of Jonathan Brown and Scott Robertson. The duo are still suspended so sit out along with injured goalkeeper Callum Reidford and defender Martyn Corrigan. Scott is hoping to have a midfielder from a SPL side on board by kick-off if a loan deal can be organised and despite his emotional ties to the Dens Park club he is only interested in three points. Scott said: "We have done well recently but we need to start winning games and picking points up. "It may well be Dundee that we are playing but it is three points that are available just like any other team and that is all I want to us achieve." Former Rangers winger Neil McCann will again be in the Dundee squad for the trip. Veteran winger McCann was the match-winner last weekend and will again feature as a trialist for the dark Blues as they take on bottom-of-the-table side Stirling. Manager Barry Smith has yet to decide whether to include himself again in a similar basis as he looks to take three points away from his former mentor Jocky Scott. Smith said: "We are short on numbers again so Neil will be involved but I have no plans to bring anyone else in. I know that there is a great tie between Dundee and Jocky but all I am looking for is another three points and that is all that this game is about. "We could pull further away from the relegation zone but there is still a long way to go."

Match Report

Dark Blues extend unbeaten run Ten-man Dundee extended their unbeaten league run to 15 games with a 1-0 win over Stirling at the Forthbank Stadium. Stirling forced the first chance of the game after just 13 minutes, but Nicholas Riley did well to clear Gordon Smith's near-post header from a Chris Aitken corner. However, Dundee made the much-needed breakthrough in the 35th minute with Sean Higgins heading home Matt Lockwood's left-wing cross. Sean Welsh and Stephen Stirling both went close for the home side without forcing an equalising goal and Dundee managed to hold on for all three points, despite playing the final 26 minutes with 10 men following Gary Irvine's 64th-minute dismissal for violent conduct.
