Match Preview

Corrigan missing for Albion Relegated Stirling Albion have ruled out defender Martyn Corrigan for their home match against Raith and Scott Buist is also likely to miss out with a back injury despite being free from suspension. Chris Aitken is included after a ban, but manager Jocky Scott is delaying selecting his team until he learns how Brian Allison and Jonathan Brown have fared in fitness tests. Scott said: "I am looking for us to go out and break my duck as manager of Stirling Albion with a win. "Every we do now is about getting prepared for next season but I want us to go out of this Division with a flourish. "I remain disappointed that we did not make a better fight of it but we will battle on." Title-chasing Raith Rovers welcome back Stephen Simmons from a ban. However, Dougie Hill remains out through suspension, striker Gary Wales is doubtful with a thigh complaint and midfielder Iain Williamson remains sidelined through injury. Manager John McGlynn is looking for his men to be more deadly in front of goal. He said: "We drew with Cowdenbeath last Saturday as we missed a lot of chances to win the game. "If we create in the same manner as we did then but take a higher ratio I am sure we will do okay at Stirling. "It is the real nitty-gritty stage of the season and there is not a lot of room for error."

Match Report

Baird keeps Rovers in the hunt John Baird's headed goal 10 minutes from time gave Raith a 2-1 victory at relegated Stirling to keep them within a point of Scottish First Division leaders Dunfermline. Raith went in front after quarter of an hour Allan Walker finding the bottom corner with a free-kick from just outside the area. Albion were almost level four minutes later when Gordon Smith's 18-yard effort was well saved by Rovers goalkeeper Andrew McNeil. Stirling eventually equalised after 63 minutes, Joshua Flood controlling Smith's pass to convert from inside the area. Flood was then denied by McNeil before Raith retook the lead, Baird latching onto Stephen Simmons' flick-on to convert from close range. Walker nearly made it 3-1 on 90 minutes but his 25-yard effort hit the crossbar.
