Berwick v Stirling preview

Albion make the trip across the border on Tuesday to face Berwick Rangers at Shielfield, kick-off 7.45pm. It’s a huge game for both clubs – we will go above our hosts if we make it two away wins in the space of four days but Ian Little’s team have a game in hand and have the chance to move to within a point of the play-offs if they come out on top.

Team news: Keeper David Crawford, defender Ross McGeachie and forward Graham Weir again miss out and Brian Allison is a doubt with a shoulder injury. Ross Forsyth is free to play after an operation to repair his broken nose was cancelled. Marc Lancaster and Dene Droudge are absent for Berwick, who welcome back Steve Notman after a ban.

This season: Jordan White scored a debut goal on our last visit to Shielfield in September but we crashed to a 4-1 defeat. We gained revenge with a terrific 6-3 win at Forthbank in December. This fixture was due to be played on January 26 but was postponed due to snow.

Match facts: Berwick have lost just twice at home this season and this is the first of three Shielfield clashes for the Borderers in the space of a week. We are aiming to extend our unbeaten run to eight matches, having ended our away duck at Elgin on Saturday. Berwick beat Elgin 2-1 in their most recent home fixture a week ago.

Greig McDonald: “It would be good to get a win as our 4-1 defeat there last September was probably our worst display of the season.”

Ian Little: “We got a point at Annan on Saturday but it was not a performance I enjoyed – we can pass the ball much better.”
