Rodgers double sinks Rovers

A brace from striker Andy Rodgers helped Stenhousemuir to a 3-0 win against Albion Rovers.

The Warriors had the best of the opening exchanges, with Kevin McKinlay shooting wide before Stephen Murray's 30-yard strike was saved by Albion goalkeeper Derek Gaston.

The sides went in level at half-time before Stewart Kean slotted home from 12 yards in the 57th minute.

Rodgers, who scored a hat-trick against Annan Athletic in the Scottish Cup last week, then found the net twice in the closing stage.

He bagged from 12 yards with a neat finish, before adding another five minutes later courtesy of a powerful strike from the edge of the penalty area.

Warriors fretting over Ferguson

Stenhousemuir have a doubt over midfielder Brown Ferguson with a back injury as they host in-form Albion, looking for their seventh win in eight home games this season.

The Warriors have again ruled out midfielder Paul McHale due to his foot injury, but defender Colin Hamilton returns to their squad along with striker Shaun Fraser.

Assistant manager Kevin McGoldrick said: "Albion look to have turned their season around with four wins in a row and they will be looking to keep that going by defeating us. We have been strong at home all season and want that to carry on.

"Their manager Paul Martin will have them fired up as he always does, and we will need to play well to take all three points."

Albion will be without Chris Boyle and Barry Russell through injury as they go in search of their fifth straight league win.

Rovers boss Paul Martin received a boost this week with the news that player-assistant manager Todd Lumsden is free from injury, while on-loan Motherwell youngster Steven Lawless is available again after being barred from playing in the Scottish Cup last week by his parent club.

Striker Robert Love will need a late check after surgery on a broken figure, but on-loan St Mirren frontman Thomas Reilly is expected to shake off a knock to feature.

Martin said: "Stenhousemuir have been strong this season and have great experience in their squad but if we can keep Andy Rodgers quiet we are in with a chance."
