Match Preview

Reidford returns for Albion Bottom of the table Stirling Albion welcome back goalkeeper Callum Reidford to their squad for the visit of Ross County. Central defender Scott Buist will miss out through suspension but manager Jocky Scott does not anticipate any additional absentees from the squad. "There are just little niggles and the players should be involved in what is a must-win game for us," he said. "I have been saying that we need a win for a few weeks now but we are really running out of games now so it is imperative that we win this one. He added: "We can take confidence from draws against Ross County already this season that shows us there is not too much between the teams." Ross County have doubts over defender Jonny Flynn and striker Steven Milne. Manager Jimmy Calderwood will give the pair as much time as possible to recover, but will definitely be without defender Darren McCormack when the Staggies look to get back to winning ways following the midweek defeat against Dunfermline. Martin Hardie`s injury time strike denied Ross a vital point in their relegation battle and Calderwood is still reeling from the defeat. He said: "I am still annoyed at how we lost that game and failed to even get a draw. "If you don't pick up enough points you end up in trouble. We had chances to win the game but failed to take them and we cannot afford to do that against Stirling" "We are undefeated away from home during my time here but being undefeated is sometimes not enough, we need to finish games off to get wins."

Match Report

Ross ease relegation concerns Ross County moved four points clear of the First Division relegation play-off place with a comfortable 2-0 win at bottom-of-the-table Stirling. Goals in each half from Iain Vigurs and Jonathan Flynn handed the Staggies a vital three points against the relegation certainties. Vigurs nodded Marc Fitzpatrick's left-wing cross into the top corner in the 44th minute before Flynn doubled the lead in the 67th minute with a long-range effort which flew into the bottom corner. Stirling introduced Gordon Smith and Andrew Gibson in an attempt to get back in the game but aside from a few close range efforts, they never really looked like troubling their opponents.
