Stirling Albion 2 Queen's Park 3

Quick turn around for the Beanos after Wednesday’s draw at the Shire. In town this afternoon were Gardner Spiers’ Queen’s Park outfit. The Glasgow side stuffed old near neighbours Clyde 4-1 in their New Year derby and would have come to Forthbank full of confidence. Only one defeat in six for the Spiders and even that required a last gasp winner from Rangers at Hampden. Queen’s have also won the two previous matches between the sides this term and were most likely fancied to make it three against the SFL’s bottom side today. Stirling though have shown some signs of life in recent weeks, although without a win in their last two outings. Team lines for this afternoon showed three changes from Ochilview. Out went the suspended Gary Thom and Graham Weir while Daly McSorley dropped to the bench. Into the starting line-up came the fit again Ross McGeachie, midweek [… more]

For reasons unknown some bright spark at the SFL came up with the idea of Friday night football. Fine, perhaps as an experiment at the start or end of the season on a sunny evening. However, a freezing, damp night at the end of November never really felt like it had the potential to attract too many neutrals. So it proved as even the die hards were thin on the ground at Hampden in a crowd which looked a lot less than the 557 announced. Anyway, enough of that and onto the game itself. With eight defeats in their last ten the Beanos came into this match short on confidence and short of bodies. The home side were also on a bit of a slide and in their last home league outing lost to East Stirlingshire. On that form line even the struggling Albion may have harboured hopes of getting [… more]

Back to back “reality checks” according to the manager after Stirling defeats to Elgin and Clyde. “Absolute dross” is what most in attendance, particularly against the Bully Wee, would label it. Any hopes that a drop in division would lead to a dramatic up turn in our fortunes are currently proving sadly misplaced. However, another week and another chance to get our season back on track. Today’s visitors Queen’s Park recorded an outstanding win over SPL Dundee in midweek League Cup action and would have headed to Forthbank in confident mood. With this being the Beanos last home game for five weeks the Stirling faithful would have been extra keen for their favourites to put on some sort of show. Team lines for the Albion saw four changes from the Clyde defeat. Danny Ashe, Scott Davidson and Steven Weir all dropped to the bench while Jamie McCunnie was not involved [… more]
