Airdrie 24-09-11

It must have been a soul searching few days for Jocky Scott and his troops following the lamentable display against Forfar at the DDS last time out. Nothing we did that day came off and the reality was that we made an underwhelming Forfar side look like world beaters. Not good enough. Not anywhere near good enough. Jocky knew that and so did his players. This team has the potential to score goals while playing some decent football. Last weekend we just didn’t turn up. Today’s opponents Airdrie have struggled to get going themselves in league action and before kick off were below the Beanos in the table. The teams of course met in the 1st round of the League Cup and it was the North Lanarkshire side who coasted home by give goals to nil. That scoreline though was a tad misleading. Stirling created as many chances as their hosts that day but sloppy finishing and poor discipline cost us as we went down to nine men and shipped some late goals. Surely the Beanos would do better today. They had to. The Stirling starting XI showed just the one change from the Forfar debacle as Craig McLeish made way for Lewis Bonar.
