Stenhousemuir V Stirling - view commentary, squad, and statistics of the game live.Smith to sit out Forthbank clashGoalkeeper Chris Smith is Stenhousemuir's only absentee with a cut knee as they host neighbours Stirling Albion at Forthbank.The Warriors lost 1-0 to Brechin last weekend and manager Scott Booth is hoping that his men put in a 90 minute shift in this game."The first 45 minutes last weekend was not great but the second 45 was a lot better," he explained

"We pushed Brechin hard for an equaliser but it never came."Stirling are a good side who are not frightened to mix things up in terms of players and formations but if we play for the entire game then we can win."Stirling are without the injured David McClune (calf), James Creaney (ankle), Phil Johnston (hamstring), Lewis Coult (foot) and Steven Doris (shoulder) as they look for their first league success of the season.They disappointed last weekend in a defeat to Ayr however a much improved performance in midweek brought smiles of satisfaction from manager Greig McDonald despite their Petrofac Training Cup exit to Alloa.McDonald said: "After being so poor last weekend we could have knocked Alloa out with a great display

A couple of things went against us but if we play like that again we have a chance against an established League 1 side in Stenhousemuir."
