Match Preview

Aitken back to face Pars Stirling Albion midfielder Chris Aitken is back from a ban to face Dunfermline. Defender Ross Forsyth needs a fitness test and centre-back Brian Allison remains sidelined through injury. Albion will be looking to get their first three points of the season. Boss John O'Neill said: "We need to pick up points from our home games and this would be a great game to start in as we are not back here for four weeks due to the international break and then two tough away games. "We need to concentrate fully against Dunfermline or they will do what Falkirk did to us and punish our mistakes when we switched off." Winger David Graham is the only absentee for Athletic. The Pars will be out to ensure they pick up three points to boost their promotion bid and put the disappointment of last Saturday's defeat at Raith behind them. Assistant manager Gerry McCabe said: "Everyone knows that we are a good footballing side, however sometimes that is not enough. "You have to earn the right to gain control of a game and Stirling is the perfect example of a game where we need to impose ourselves on it and not let Stirling stop us from playing."

Match Report

Kirk seals fine win Andy Kirk's brace helped Dunfermline to a comfortable 5-1 victory over Stirling and moved them into second place in the First Division. Kirk scored twice in the last two minutes as the home defence crumbled. The Pars were 2-0 up inside 15 minutes with two simple finishes by Steven Bell and Steven McDougall. Gary Mason played in Bell to finish from six yards, and McDougall got on the end of a Joe Cardle cross to double the advantage. Stirling did manage to pull a goal back before half-time through striker Gordon Smith's close-range header. However, another goal from Cardle after 78 minutes - a fierce 20-yard drive - along with Kirk's double - the first a neat header and the second a precise finish from 12 yards - ensured Stirling's dismal season continued.
