Match Preview

Johnstone boost for Stirling Stirling boss Greig McDonald has a full squad to choose from for the first leg of their play-off final against East Fife as Phil Johnstone has recovered from the illness that saw him substituted early in Saturday's 5-3 win over Annan. McDonald is working hard at keeping expectations at his club in check as he advised: "We ended the season unbeaten in six games, with five wins in that run, and then beat Annan in both legs of the semi-final. "Confidence amongst the squad is obviously very good as a result but we have not achieved anything yet. East Fife are from a higher league and are favourites." East Fife will give goalkeeper Greg Paterson until the last minute to get over the head knock he suffered against Clyde on Saturday, however ankle injuries rule out Kevin Rutkiewicz and Stephen Hughes and a leg injury keeps Gary Fisher absent. If Paterson fails to make it, 19-year-old Dylan Rooney, who was the hero in the penalty shootout at the weekend, will play. Manager Gary Naysmith said: "We will take confidence from the Clyde game into this one. We showed a great deal of resilience as we faced defeat and relegation both in the game and in the penalties. "Stirling fancy their chances but we will be out to win through."
