Saturday afternoon see's us make our second visit of the year to Forthbank to face Stirling Albion, in fact it will be the third time since the end of January that the sides have met given the way the fixtures have panned out!

Dave Mackay's side have held the upper hand so far with three wins out of three in this seasons meetings, Back in October goals from Darren Smith, Peter MacDonald and Neil McLaughlin gave the Binos a 3-0 win.

Our visit to a cold Forthbank on the closing day of January saw the home side win 1-0 courtesy of an own goal by Jamie Pyper while ten days later we went down 2-1 at Central Park with MacDonald bagging a brace either side on Harvey Swann's equaliser from the penalty spot.

The Binos currently sit in third place in the table nine points behind leaders Montrose and six behind Peterhead but perhaps more importantly are 12 points ahead of fifth place Elgin.

Like us Mackay's side have been unbeaten in their last three games with a 2-0 midweek win at Elgin following a 2-2 draw at Edinburgh City which was preceded by a 1-0 win at Berwick.

The last week has been a positive one for ourselves with a 2-1 win at Stenhousemuir on Tuesday following on from last weeks 3-1 home win over Elgin.

This leaves us nine points behind second bottom Berwick and ten behind Edinburgh City with both sides meeting at Shielfield Park on Saturday.
