Match Preview

Albion without MacDonald Stirling Albion defender Greg MacDonald will miss out again when former manager Allan Moore visits with his Morton team. However, on-loan Hearts full-back Jonathan Brown is available again and set to feature in his last game for Jocky Scott's side. Fellow Tynecastle youngster Gordon Smith will also play his last game, as will the on-loan pair of Rangers' Stephen Stirling and Sean Welsh of Hibs. Scott is keeping his fingers crossed his men can win for the first time in 25 games. He said: "Apart from Greg I have everyone available and hopefully we can finish the season on a high. "Everything we have been doing recently is about next season and hopefully we can give ourselves a boost before the summer break by finally getting that win." Morton are without Kevin Kelbie and Sean Fitzharris. The strikers are not fit enough for a match which could see them finish in the top half of the table if they defeat the relegated hosts and other results work in their favour. After three defeats in a row manager Allan Moore is out to stop the season ending on a low note. He said: "We were looking good to getting into fourth place a few weeks ago and that would have been a tremendous achievement for us but the wheels have came off a wee bit recently. "Our plan is to go to Stirling and get the three points as that will move us at least one place up in the table and possibly more."

Match Report

Rare win for Stirling Stirling ended their 25-match winless run as they claimed a shock 3-2 win over Morton. Carlo Monti put the visitors ahead in the 28th minute when he blasted home from the spot following Michael Doyle's foul on David O'Brien. And after Ross Forsyth had gone close for the home side, fellow midfielder Stephen Stirling turned home Forsyth's cross to level the scores three minutes before the break. Stirling grabbed his second of the match with a penalty on the stroke of half-time after he was brought down by Grant Evans. Midfielder Brian Graham spurned a chance to equalise when he volleyed a 65th-minute effort over the crossbar from the centre of the penalty area. But the visitors' fourth defeat in a row was confirmed when striker Michael Mullen tapped in the third from close range, making Stuart McCaffrey's late header from 12 yards a consolation.
