Albion Rovers 3 v 0 Stranraer

Rovers consolidated their 7th place position in League 1 with a fantastic and well deserved three nil victory over Stranraer.

Match Stats can be found HERE

Congratulations to Livingston clinched the Ladbrokes League 1 title with four games to spare thanks to a 2-1 win over Alloa Athletic on Saturday.

David Hopkin’s side needed just a point to seal the championship against their closest challengers but goals from Scott Pittman and Jackson Longridge saw them end the Wasps’ 10-match unbeaten run, with Dylan Mackin netting for the visitors.

Today’s win at the Tony Macaroni Arena marks an immediate return to the Ladbrokes Championship for Livingston, who were relegated last season.

Elsewhere in League 1, Airdrieonians leapfrogged Brechin City in the play-off places following a 3-1 win at the Excelsior Stadium.

Queen’s Park kept their top-four ambitions alive with a 2-0 victory against second-bottom Peterhead at Hampden.

Albion Rovers are just three points outside the top four after beating Stranraer 3-0 at the Exsel Group Stadium.

Bottom club Stenhousemuir defeated East Fife 3-1 at Ochilview to close the gap on Peterhead to just two points as the visitors slipped to fifth.

Game

Albion Rovers Vs Stranraer

leagueWith two points separating both teams its a winner takes all match today at the Exsel Group Stadium. Rovers form as gained some consistency over the past few games and we go into todays match with some confidence.

Late equaliser against Queens Park but it was a spirited performance from the team and they look forward to recovering from the disappointment with a home win verses Stranraer today at 3pm at the Exsel Group Stadium.

 With both teams having similar form over the past few weeks, it will be a competitive match, one which may change the face of the league in terms of what can be achieve this season. A win for any team will see them go into a potential play off spot, where a loss may have the opposite effect, such is the tightness of league positions.

Other important games in this battle are Stenhousemuir  Vs East Fife and Queen’s Park Vs Peterhead it may be all change after 90 minutes?

Capture

Albion Rovers Vs Queens Park Tuesday 4th April

With one point separating both teams Rovers will look to take home advantage and move up the league. But with 5 draws in their last five games Queens Park will make it a tight game. Queen’s Park really need to recover from a decline where their last win saw them beat league strugglers Stenhousemuir on the 11th of February. It may not be a true reflection of form as four of their recent draws came against the top four teams in the league, Livingston , Alloa Athletic, Brechin City and East Fife respectively.

Rovers win against East Fife and Draw Saturday verses Alloa Athletic is the first two games in a busy month with Stranraer, Queen’s Park, East Fife, Brechin City still to come.

In an ever changing league its all to play for and we wish everyone at the game a safe journey and an enjoyable night at the Exsel Group Stadium

7.45pm Kick Off Exsel Group Stadium
