Albion stay bottom

Stirling failed to build on their shock win over Rangers as they were beaten 3-1 at home by Montrose, with both teams having a man sent off.

Gary Thom put the home side ahead after seven minutes, heading in a corner from Daly McSorley at the back post.

But Montrose were level three minutes later as Kieran McAnespie turned the ball into his own net from Jamie Winter's cross.

Leighton McIntosh put the visitors ahead just after the half-hour mark with a low shot from the right side of the box, before Scott Morton added the third on the stroke of half-time, slotting home a Scott Johnston cross.

Both sides were reduced to 10 men after 62 minutes, as Montrose's Stephen McNally and Stirling's Steven Weir clashed heads, referee Andrew Dallas showing no hesitation in giving both players their marching orders.

The defeat leaves Albion, who beat Rangers 1-0 last time out, rooted to the foot of the table.

Coyne blow for Beanos

Striker Bradley Coyne remains out for Stirling as they look to build on their win over Rangers by defeating visitors Montrose and move over the Gable Endies in the table.

Assistant manager Shaun Fagan remains in charge as manager Greig McDonald is on honeymoon with Fagan telling his men to grab three points to ensure that the Rangers result remains meaningful.

Fagan said: "Beating Rangers was great for the club but it earned us just the same number of points as any other win. There is no point in beating them and then not building on it."

"Thankfully this game has an edge as we can climb the table with a win so we can go out and play with the same sense of purpose as we did against Rangers."

Montrose manager Stuart Garden is hoping to have both Alan Campbell and Paul Lunan back in his defence after injury for the trip.

The Gable Endies are without the injured Paul Watson and Garden hopes the prospective return of Campbell and Lunan will help to bring consistency to his side.

Garden said: "We are very much an up and down team at the moment where we win one game and then fall flat. The 6-1 defeat from Elgin last week was really disappointing but hopefully have Alan and Paul back will settle us down."

"Stirling are obviously coming into it on a high after a great result against Rangers but I am looking for my players to handle that and then to go out and win the game."
