Match Preview

Trio doubtful for Albion Relegated Stirling Albion have doubts over the defensive trio of Martyn Corrigan, Scott Buist and Jonathan Brown for the visit of Falkirk. Albion are desperate to end their 23-game winless run while boss Jocky Scott is also assessing which players should be involved in their Second Division campaign next season." Scott said: "We played better against Raith last Saturday than we have been and I am looking for a high level of performance again. "I am also looking for that first win as Stirling boss and hopefully that will finally come against Falkirk, although we will need to battle hard as they still have one eye on the Championship." Falkirk will be out to make it four wins in a row. They welcome full-back Marc Twaddle after suspension but promising youngster Blair Alston is a doubt with a knock and Jack Compton remains out of manager Steven Pressley's plans. The Bairns can still win the Championship, but Pressley will not be monitoring events at East End Park where title rivals Dunfermline and Raith Rovers meet. He said: "All Falkirk can do is go out and win and what happens elsewhere happens. If we win we keep things ticking over regardless of results elsewhere. "We have won three out of three and I want to make it six wins out of six by the end of the season."

Match Report

Bairns keep promotion dream alive First-half goals from Mark Millar and Tom McManus helped 10-man Falkirk keep their faint promotion hopes alive with a 2-1 win at already-relegated Stirling. The Bairns, who were lucky not to fall behind early on, took the lead eight minutes before the break, Millar stroking home a penalty following Scott Robertson's foul on Brian McLean. It was 2-0 four minutes later, McManus taking Stewart Murdoch's pass before firing home from inside the penalty area. Stirling pulled one back after 53 minutes as Gordon Smith latched on to Brian Allison's flick on to head home from close range. Falkirk looked set to see out the win comfortably until Stephen Kingsley was sent off for a professional foul on Michael Doyle two minutes from time. That set up a tense finish, although the visitors held on to claim the points.
