Stenhousemuir 1 - 1 Airdrieonians

Saturday 10th December 2011
A Rodgers (4)W McLaren (69)

Chance missed for Warriors

Stenhousemuir missed the opportunity to gain ground on the top two in Division Two as Airdrie battled back to earn a 1-1 draw.

Andy Rodgers scored the opener after four minutes, the Warriors' top scorer grabbing his 11th of the season with a powerful left-footed strike past Connor Fairley.

Stewart Kean then came close to doubling the lead after 23 minutes, but Fairley did well to close down the striker when he looked likely to score.

Kean was left kicking himself in the second half as Airdrie scored with their first shot on target, William McLaren netting the equaliser midway through the second half with a composed finish.

Airdrie carried the momentum into the final stages and Jamie Bain could have stolen all three points, but his tame shot dribbled wide.

Striker Rodgers fit for Warriors

Andy Rodgers is included in a full-strength Stenhousemuir squad for the visit of Airdrie.

The striker has overcome the back injury he picked up last week and Warriors assistant manager Kevin McGoldrick believes his side have plenty of reasons to be motivated for the game.

He said: "Firstly we have to win to keep in with the top two in the table. They are playing each other and it would be great to hear that they have drawn but only if we have won.

"Secondly Airdrie gave us a real going over at their place when they beat us 5-2 and we want to gain a bit of revenge for that.

"They have been consistently scoring goals so winning will not be easy."

Airdrie will be at full strength as they look to do the double on their opponents.

The Diamonds thrashed Stirling 4-1 last time out and manager Jimmy Boyle is asking his players for more of the same.

He said: "We carried on scoring goals last Saturday but we kept things tight at the back a lot better than we have been doing and that was really pleasing.

"We will need to have the same combination but I recognise that this will be a really tough game and I would settle for a 5-4 win just as much as 1-0 one.

"Stenhousemuir are one of the three clubs that have pulled away from the others in the table and a win would help narrow that gap as we have ambitions of our own to be up there."
