Ross Stewart frustrates Stanraer in stalemate against Albion Rovers

Ross Stewart made a string of vital saves to deny Stranraer as Albion Rovers held on for a 0-0 draw in the Ladbrokes League One clash.

The home side had the bulk of the chances in a battle of two sides scrapping to join the play-off picture.

But Stewart was defiant at Stair Park, from the early moments of the match.

The 20-year-old former Motherwell player thwarted Willie Gibson in the opening minutes, before his opposite number Cameron Belford prevented Rovers going ahead, denying Ally Love who was clear on goal.

Stewart expertly turned away Craig Malcolm's flicked header as half-time approached.

Craig Pettigrew threatened after the break for Stranraer, with a shot deflected wide, before Stewart dealt capably with Gibson's threatening free-kick. He denied Pettigrew moments later too, before Gibson shot over late on.
