Match Preview

Albion sweating on McLeish Stirling will give midfielder Craig McLeish until the last minute to overcome a back injury and be included against Stenhousemuir. Goalkeeper Sam Filler remains absent with a broken hand and defender Shaun Dillon's injured ankle keeps him sidelined, with bottom of the table Stirling out to make amends for a 4-0 defeat the last time they played the Warriors. Interim manager Greig McDonald is also looking to finally end a run of five postponements and an abandonment to begin his time in charge as player/manager. He said: "We had quite a bad day at the office the last time we faced Stenhousemuir when we simply failed to turn up at all. "While the past few weeks have been frustrating we are raring to go and get something from the game." Stenhousemuir are waiting on news of midfielder Brown Ferguson's battle to overcome a calf problem before finalising their side. Assistant manager Kevin McGoldrick is looking for a positive reaction from the Warriors after they went down too easily to Cowdenbeath on Boxing Day, losing 2-0 at home. "We were poor in that game and made it too easy for them," he said. "We have been good all season on our own patch but that was not the case against Cowdenbeath but we cannot let our heads drop over it. "Hopefully we can bounce straight back against Stirling, although it will be difficult as their players will be out to show Greig McDonald what they can do."

Match Report

Victory lifts Stirling gloom Stirling put an end to a run of seven straight defeats to beat Stenhousemuir 3-1 and lift themselves off the bottom of Scottish Division Two. Stenhousemuir were closest to scoring in the first half, Ross McMillan heading wide at the far post from a Brown Ferguson corner and Stewart Kean's strike forced a full-stretch save from Callum Reidford to keep the game goalless. But after the break, Stirling struck with two sucker-punches as Alan Cook turned in the box to rifle past Alistair Brown to give his side a shock lead. Albion soon doubled their lead after Darren Smith's corner found Gary Thom at the near post. The defender headed home his first goal for the club against his former employers. The visitors halved the deficit with seven minutes left through Iain Thomson but Joshua Flood's long-range pearler secured Albion's much needed win.
