Stirling in good shape

Stirling have received several boosts ahead of the visit of bottom-of-the-table Queen's Park.

James Bishop is available after work commitments and David McClune, Dale Fulton and Phil Johnston have all been declared fit.

Knee injuries keep Chris Smith and Brian Allison out with an ankle injury ensuring that Ross Forsyth sits this one out too.

Manager Greig McDonald said: "We are in good shape number wise and after getting back into the top four, we are determined to stay there. I watched Queen's Park in midweek and they were very strong in the first half but ironically lost their way when Annan had a man sent off."

Queen's Park will give Ross Fisher until the last minute to prove his fitness with head coach Gus McPherson spending Friday trying to bring more bodies on board.

McPherson is also looking for a positive reaction after Tuesday night's 3-2 defeat from 10 man Annan. He explained: "The first half was really good and no one saw a very poor second 45 minutes coming. However, that is what we got and the players know that they let themselves down.

"We had been improving but after getting ourselves into a strong position we could not handle things. It was disappointing and I am looking for better at Stirling Albion."
