Match Preview

Duo still missing for Stirling Stirling Albion boss Jocky Scott is again without goalkeeper Callum Reidford and defender Martyn Corrigan for the home game against Morton. Scott did receive some good news, though, with club captain Ross Forsyth reporting no ill-effects following his comeback game against Ross County at the weekend. Scott, who has been unable to add to his squad, said: "Ross was tired and a bit stiff, which was to be expected, but he played his part in a good performance in a game we played well in and could have won. "More of the same will be required against Morton, and if we can continue with the improvements I have seen already I`m sure we can climb off the bottom of the table." Morton boss Allan Moore returns to his former club without the services of midfielders Carlo Monti and Michael Tidser. The duo were both shown red cards against Falkirk at the weekend. The Greenock side have yet to win on their travels this season, and Moore reckons his former home would be an ideal place to start. He said: "I am looking forward to seeing some old faces but I will be sending Morton out to ensure they pick up three points." Moore added: "We faced each other on the opening day of the season at our place and Stirling sat in for most of the game. I am not expecting a repeat of that as there have been a lot of changes since then."

Match Report

Goal-den Graham sinks Stirling Morton left it late to break the hearts of basement boys Stirling with Brian Graham scoring the only goal at Forthbank. Stirling played with fortitude but struggled to create against a well-drilled Morton team, who pounced late on for the points through Graham. Scott Robertson and Ross Forsyth had strikes on goal for the hosts but it was Allan Jenkins who came closest in the opening period for Morton, bringing a fine stop out of Scott Christie with a driven strike. Stirling made changes in search of a decisive goal but it was Morton who snatched the winner with six minutes left. Jenkins found room in the right channel and his pass fed Graham, who made no mistake with a classy finish into the top corner from 18 yards.
