Stirling sign David Sinclair ahead of East Stirling clash

Stirling Albion have added midfielder David Sinclair to their squad for the clash with East Stirling.

The former Livingston, Ayr United, Airdrie and Clyde player comes into the reckoning along with Lee Hamilton, who should return after injury.

However, Craig Comrie and Willie Robertson are suspended and the injured Phil Johnston (knee) and Craig Beattie (hamstring) miss out as well.

Assistant manager Martyn Corrigan said: "Neither East Stirling nor ourselves are happy about occupying the bottom two places in the table so we will both be going out to win this game.

"We have played well in our recent games and will look to keep that going against a side out to make up for a Scottish Cup disappointment."

East Stirling have Reece Donaldson back after a ban kept him out of the cup defeat by Huntly, and on-loan striker Jonathan Courts, who was ineligible for that game, is also available but Billy Vidler misses out with a knee injury.

Head coach Craig Tully said of the Huntly loss: "It was a sore result in a game where we gave away two early goals very cheaply. The players fought back well but could not get the game squared and hopefully they have taken on board the lessons.

"Stirling are a well-organised side. However, we won well against Elgin recently and will look to repeat that."
