Stirling doubtful over duo

Stirling duo Ross McGeachie and Jamie Bishop are injury doubts ahead of their meeting with Hamilton.

Both suffered injuries in last weekend's Ramsdens Cup clash with Raith and will be assessed ahead of kick-off.

Bradley Coyne could return after nearly a year out with a knee injury but David McClune remains sidelined following groin surgery.

Manager Greig McDonald said: "We held our own against a side two leagues above us and that wasa good sign for the season ahead. Hopefully we can do the same again against Accies."

Hamilton player/manager Alex Neil is set to return after missing last week's 2-1 defeat to Airdrieonians

Louis Longridge is a doubt after picking up a knock in that fixture while Andy Ryan is also unavailable due to suspension.

Jon McShane is also likely to miss out as he looks to build fitness having started pre-season late due to a knee injury.

Neil said: "Stirling have a host of experienced players and have a terrific record in 2013 so we will have to play well to win. We want to bounce back after the Airdrie result."
