Stirling Albion 0 Queen of the South 2

A heavy defeat on Saturday at Palmerston suggested it was likely to be another tough 90 minutes for Jocky Scott’s hapless Beanos this evening. No wins in 18 now for a team whose second division title glory seems like a lifetime ago. With Cowdenbeath all but out of sight it was surely just a case of playing for pride in what’s left of a very disappointing and frustrating season. Team lines from the DDS: Stirling Albion: 1. Scott Christie, 2. John Kane, 3. Ross Forsyth, 4. Paul McHale, 5. Scot Buist,  6. Brian Allison, 7. Sean Welsh, 8. Scott Robertson, 9. Gordon Smith, 10. Tom Brighton, 11. Ryan Borris – Subs: Martyn Corrigan (on for 5), Michael Mullen (on for 10), Andy Gibson (on for 7),  Stephen Stirling (Unused), Murray Jackson (GK) Queen of the South: 1. Roddy McKenzie, 2.

Queen of the South 4 Stirling Albion 1

After the pathetic display against Partick Thistle on Tuesday the Beanos today headed down the M74 to take on Queen of the South in Dumfries. Both games between the sides have been drawn this season and another point today would have been seen as something to build on. Unfortunately as the title of this article tells you we didn’t get a point. Instead we suffered another morale sapping heavy defeat. Team lines from Palmerston: Stirling Albion: 1. Scott Christie, 2. Scot Buist, 3. Martyn Corrigan, 4. Ross Forsyth, 5. Michael Doyle,  6. Sean Welsh, 7. John Kane, 8. Paul McHale, 9. Andy Gibson, 10. Stephen Stirling, 11. Gordon Smith – Subs: Tom Brighton (on for 10), Ryan Borris (on for 9), Scott Robertson (on for 9),  Michael Mullen (Unused), Murray Jackson (GK) Queen of the South: 1. Roddy McKenzie, 2.

Stirling arrived at 7pm due to an accident on M73. The team was along familiar lines with only two changes from the narrow loss to Dundee. Out went the injured Greg McDonald and dropped Michael Mullen. Into the starting XI came Sean Welsh and trialist striker Tom Brighton. The former Rangers kid has been linked with Stirling for a couple of weeks but rumours at the weekend had him going to Ayr. It would seem that this move didn’t materialise and so Tam is up front with Gordon Smith for Stirling this evening. Confirmed team lines from Palmerston: QoS: David Hutton; Craig Reid, Bob Harris, David Lilley, Daniel Carmichael; Ryan McGuffie, Rocco Quinn, Allan Johnston, Willie McLaren; Colin McMenamin, Derek Holmes – Subs: Stephen McKenna, Ian McShane, Ryan Smylie, Daniel Orsi, Roddy McKenzie (GK) Stirling Albion: Scott Christie; Ross Forsyth, Scot Buist, Brian Allison; Michael Doyle, Chris Aitken, Paul McHale, [… more]

For the first time in a month the Beanos played a League match at Forthbank as Queen of the South visited Stirling. The Beanos two week road trip saw us win at Partick Thistle before falling to defeat up in Dingwall. Three points from two away games isn’t to be sniffed at but it’s at home that John O’Neill’s men really need to begin staking their claim for 1st Division survival. However, that’s easier said than done, as other than Cowdenbeath, every visitor is in theory a fitter, more experienced and technically better full-time outfit. Stirling though need to forget about what the other teams can do and simply concentrate on making Forthbank a tough place to visit where opposing sides need to work hard to earn points. Certainly the signs have been there that we aren’t the worst side going and with a rub of the green we could [… more]
