Stirling Albion head for the Reigart Stadium – better known as Cliftonhill – on Saturday to face bottom club Albion Rovers.
We are looking to bounce back from a 2-1 home defeat to Annan as we make our first visit to Coatbridge in more than four years.
Team news: Darren Smith, Lee Hamilton and Willie Robertson are again ruled out through injury. Darren Barr has a chance of being available if he doesn’t suffer a reaction after training on Thursday night. New signing Evan Horne, who recently featured as a trialist, is suspended due to a ban carried over from last season.
Past meetings: We won 2-0 at Cliftonhill when the sides last met in April 2014 and have won six of the last seven meetings between the teams.
Opponents: Rovers were relegated on the last day of the season and have found the going tough this time round, with budgets cut. They are managed by John Brogan, who was a popular and successful player and manager with the Binos in the late 1980s and early 1990s. His No 2 is Colin Mitchell, another favourite from his Annfield days in a red shirt. The Coatbridge club are bottom of the table but picked up their first point in a 1-1 draw at Cowdenbeath last weekend.
Referee: Kevin Graham
Admission: Adults £13, Concessions £7, U16s £2
