The bottom two sides in Scottish football meet at Forthbank tonight, with bullish Stirling Albion manager Greig McDonald predicting that the moves he made in the January transfer window can help his men beat East Stirlingshire and start climbing the Third Division table.

McDonald said: “We have strengthened in every area with competition for places now in goal, defence, midfield and attack. We have also added experience so I am confident we can defeat East Stirling to move to within two points of them with two games in hand.”

Ross Forsyth re-joined the club last week from Dumbarton, while goalkeeper David Crawford joined from Montrose. Earlier in January, Jamie Bishop joined from Forfar, Phil Johnston came on loan from Dumbarton and Jordan White joined permanently from Falkirk.

Albion have been bottom since September and McDonald added: “I feel we are much better equipped for the second half of the season.”

Gary Thom and Bradley Coyne miss out, while Mark Peat, Andy Hunter and Gary Brass have left. Shire miss Paul Quinn, Nathan Shepherd, Jordan Holt and Philip Zufle and Rhys Devlin but former Rangers youngster Max Wright is included as a trialist for the second time.
