Match Preview

Davidson back for Albion Stirling welcome back Scott Davidson from suspension as they look to climb up the Second Division table by defeating Forfar and chalk up their third win in a row. Shaun Dillon remains out with an ankle injury with Marc McCulloch and Darren Smith on the doubtful list, with manager Greig McDonald looking for another battling performance from his men. McDonald said: "Forfar are an experienced side and I am surprised where they are in the table but I am looking for us to win this one and move them down a place. "We will need to show the same hard-working and battling qualities we displayed in our 3-0 win over Albion Rovers that lifted us off bottom spot on Saturday." Forfar have Michael Bolochoweckyj available after a one-match ban with manager Dick Campbell telling his men they face a relegation contest against Stirling. Defenders Jamie Bishop and Joe Shaughnessy are out with knee injuries and striker Ross Campbell remains out with an ankle problem. Campbell said: "We are fighting a battle against relegation as opposed to the promotion battle we thought we would be involved in this season. "We had been hoping we were turning things around after beating Cowdenbeath and East Fife but it is all about surviving now. Stirling are showing a great fighting spirit and we have to match that if we are to take anything from this game and move six points clear of them."

Match Report

McSorley leaves it late Daly McSorley's late equaliser earned a vital point for Stirling in their 2-2 draw with Forfar. The hosts took the lead in the 18th minute when Mark Ferry produced a fine finish after good work by Craig McLeish. Forfar hit back just after the hour mark when Stephen Tulloch rose highest to head home Dale Hilson's cross. The Loons added a second to take the lead three minutes later courtesy of a neat finish by Chris Templeman inside the box. But they were reduced to 10 men soon after when Chris Hegarty was shown the red card for a bad challenge on goalkeeper Callum Reidford. The Binos made their advantage count two minutes from time, McSorley with a finish inside the six-yard box. Dick Campbell's side are now level with Stirling on points but above them in the table courtesy of their superior goal difference.
