Match Preview

Duo banned for Stirling Defensive duo Scott Buist and Ross Forsyth must now serve their suspensions in Stirling`s clash with Dunfermline. Saturday's game against Morton was postponed due to snow. Injuries will restrict manager Jocky Scott's options further, with Callum Reidford, Greig MacDonald and Steven Stirling all ruled out, while on-loan Hearts youngster Jonathan Brown is a doubt. The Albion manager knows only a top-drawer performance will see his men prosper. Scott said: "We have shown improvements in defence and attack over recent games, but Dunfermline will come here boosted by their win at Falkirk so we have to be prepared to put on a great performance to take something from this game and start moving forward." Dunfermline travel without the injured quartet of Neil McGregor, Andy Dowie, Nicky Phinn and Steven Bell. But striker Graham Bayne is in line for his second appearance as a trialist after making his bow as a substitute during Saturday's 2-1 win at Falkirk. The Pars could regain pole position by winning should Raith fail to do the same, but manager Jim McIntyre was playing things down. He said: "We didn`t start well at Falkirk and we need to do that better at Stirling. "They will battle for everything under Jocky Scott and there is a lot of football still to be played in this division regardless of what happens in this game, so while it would be great to go top, there is a long way to go."

Match Report

Dunfermline's title hopes dented by 10-man Stirling Bottom of the table Stirling held high-flying Dunfermline to a 1-1 draw despite playing the entire second with only 10 men. Dunfermline, who have now lost further ground on First Division leaders Raith following their late win over second-bottom Cowdenbeath, took the lead after only five minutes. Joe Cardle found Andy Kirk and he beat Scott Christie, who was otherwise superb, with a right-footed effort into the bottom corner from six yards. Steven McDougall brought a good save out of Christie while Calum Woods, Graham Bayne and then Kirk all missed chances to double the visitors` lead. And they were made to pay in the 32nd minute as Ryan Borris levelled matters with a great strike from 25 yards. Stirling defender Michael Boyle was then given his marching orders just before half-time for violent conduct. Nevertheless, despite the numerical advantage, Dunfermline could not find a winner and were forced to settle for a point.
