Raith Rovers 2 Stirling Albion 1

Having collected a precious point down in Dumfries on Tuesday night it was another tough task for Stirling this afternoon as they visited table-topping Raith Rovers. The tough matches just keep coming in this league and once again the Albion would have it all on to take anything from their full-time hosts. However, under Jocky the Beanos may not be winning many games but sides are at least having to fight for what they earn. That’s all we can realistically expect at this level and probably not many fancied our chances of gaining a result at Starks Park. That said, we did win on our last visit although Rovers exacted revenge with a 3-1 win at the DDS in January. Team lines for Stirling showed just the one change from the match at Palmerston. As our defensive injury jinx continues it was the turn of Scot Buist to miss game [… more]

Stirling Albion 1 Raith Rovers 3

For the first time in almost three months the Beanos were in action this afternoon in home league fare as table topping Raith Rovers came to town. The Kirkcaldy side have been extremely impressive this term and look set to challenge strongly for a place in the SPL. Interestingly their side doesn’t look dramatically different from the one that got promoted from the second division but the one or two newer players have clearly had a major impact. The likes of Grant Murray, Steven Simmons and a rejuvenated Gregory Tade have taken Rovers to a new level. At one point Tade¬† looked on his way out of Scottish football after being nothing more than a clumsy wing back for Forfar. Since then he was given a chance to play further forward for Stranraer and the rest is history. A tough match then for Stirling who were once again struggling with [… more]

Raith Rovers 0 Stirling Albion 2

Stirling faced a tough ask this afternoon as they travelled to the Fife coast to take on a Raith Rovers side unbeaten in the first seven matches of the league season. Impressive displays in cup action as well have certainly made the Starks Park outfit one of the form teams outwith the SPL. The Rovers side hasn’t changed greatly since winning promotion a couple of seasons ago but the two or three players who have been brought in have added greatly to their squad. Many would have written this match off as a straight forward defeat for the Albion but that would have been a tad hasty. The Beanos have enjoyed a fair degree of success in Kirkcaldy in recent times and John O’Neill’s men would have gone into the match boosted by both last weekend’s clean sheet as well as better form of late. That said it would still [… more]
