Team News: Stenhousemuir
It doesn’t get much better regarding selection, with just a single fitness concern for the Stenhousemuir manager Graeme Smith to be concerned with from an otherwise complete set of players. Graeme Smith (Knee Injury) is sidelined.
Team News: Albion Rovers
Owing to an otherwise available group, there is only the one fitness issue for the Albion Rovers boss Brian Reid to be concerned with. Ryan Stevenson (Knock) won’t be playing here.
In our opinion, Stenhousemuir will most probably get a lot of shots on goal and make them count.
At the other end, Albion Rovers could well struggle to score themselves but we do fancy them scoring.
We therefore think that it’s going to be a 3-1 winning margin for Stenhousemuir at the end of the match.
