Stirling Albion 0-1 Albion Rovers

Albion Rovers got their Third Division campaign off to a winning start with victory at Stirling.

But they had to survive a spirited second-half fightback by the home side, who came within a whisker of taking a share of the points.

Albion's goal came after 13 minutes when James Dick dived to meet an Andy Paterson corner and headed the ball into the net.

They might easily have scored more as they were dominating proceedings, but the home defence stood firm.

After the interval the pattern of the match changed as Stirling took control, but they were unable to pierce a resolute defence and got nothing for their efforts.


Stirling: Reid, Nugent, McCole, McNally, Rowe, Fraser, Moore, Hay, Munro, Nicholas, O'Brien.

Subs: Butler, McLellan, Stuart, Beveridge, Turner.

Albion: Shearer, Paterson, Stirling, Smith, Cormack, Lumsden, Dick, Silvestro, Bradford, Diack, Mercer.

Subs: McLean, Coulter, McKinnon, McCaul, Fahey.

Referee: B Winter
