Albion Rovers 1 v 0 East Fife

Wallace goal sees the Rovers move away from the bottom of the league, it was good to see a level of confidence back in the team with good performances from notably Ryan Wallace, (GK) Ross Stewart and from Scott McBride who was a late replacement for Ross Davidson who injured a hamstring in the warm up. The 500 plus crowd were well entertained as we entered the final minutes with a great penalty save from in form goal keeper Ross Stewart.

We now move onto Alloa away, then Queens Park at Home, the win takes the pressure off, but its still all to play for in a league that changes weekly.

Rovers move up to 7th place in the table after a superb one nil victory against East Fife. Match Stats HERE

Ross Stewart in action

Congratulations Ross Stewart ! SPFL Team of the week

Congratulation to Rovers’ striker Ross Stewart who made the SPFL team of the week.
Craig Fowler picks his SPFL Team of the Week with Livi striker Danny Mullen singled out for special praise after bagging a double against Airdrieonians. He is this week’s star man!

GK – Sean Brennan (Berwick Rangers)

The Wee Rangers stopper was already in contention for a place in the side after he made two great stops in the first half of his side’s 3-2 at league leaders Forfar. What secures him the spot ahead of equally deserving contenders Sean Murdoch (Dunfermline) and Allan Fleming (Montrose) is his match-winning penalty save. Brennan repelled David Cox’s spot-kick deep into stoppage time to preserve the victory.

DR – Andy Geggan (Dunfermline)

Solid performance from the midfielder who continues to grow in confidence in his new role of right-back. In truth, the entire back four and goalkeeper, as already mentioned, could have found themselves included after the 1-0 win, which saw the Pars wreck Morton’s hopes of going the entire season undefeated.

DC – Daryll Meggat (Ayr United)

The Honest Men picked up a crucial victory this past weekend, bettering Dumbarton by a 2-1 scoreline that moved them level with the visitors and four points clear of bottom place St Mirren. Meggat was a rock at the heart of the defence as goals from Farid El Alagui and Robbie Crawford secured the win.

DC – Michael Bolochoweckyj (Montrose)

Forfar stay on top of the League Two table despite stretching their winless streak to seven games thanks to a surprise 1-0 victory by Montrose at the home of rivals Arbroath. The second place side were frustrated in their attempts to break down the visitors, with Bolochoweckyj in typically robust form.

DL – Lewis Stevenson (Hibernian)

The long-time club servant put in his usual energetic performance down the left-hand side as Hibernian secured a big victory over Falkirk that all but wraps up the Championship title for Neil Lennon’s men.

DM – Marvin Bartley (Hibernian)

We’ve said it before, when it’s a tough, high tempo game against a dangerous opponent, there are few players you want in your side more than Marvin Bartley. The midfielder was once again a colossus in the centre as Hibs defeated Falkirk thanks to a late James Keatings’ goal.

MR – Darren Smith (Stirling Albion)

The midfielder netted twice as Stirling Albion came back to defeat Clyde 3-2 in a thrilling encounter at Broadwood. Having started on the wing, his performances really picked up in the second half when he took up a spot in the middle, notching a double to help continue Stirling’s fine recent run.

ML – Dougie Gair (Edinburgh City)

Two goals from the left-footed midfielder who continually drifted in from the flank to devastating effect against Elgin City. Gair netted the opener and then scored the second from the penalty spot as Edinburgh took a massive step towards survival with the 3-0 win.

AM – Anthony Andreu (Dundee United)

The Frenchman was Dundee United’s star as the Tangerines lifted the Irn-Bru Cup, beating St Mirren 2-1 at Fir Park. In addition to an excellent opening goal, where the midfielder smacked a first-time volley into the far corner from 20 yards, he acted as the fulcrum for United’s passing play.

FC – Ross Stewart (Albion Rovers)

Two goals for the towering striker who continues to impress for the Cliftonhill club, as Darren Young’s side got a much-needed victory over Stenhousemuir. Stewart’s excellent movement allowed him to net the first two goals in the 3-0 win, which moved Rovers five points clear of their hosts in the relegation battle.

FC – Danny Mullen (Livingston)

A tremendous performance from the striker who notched two goals and led from the front as Livingston dispatched Airdrieonians by a 4-2 scoreline that, frankly, flattered the visitors. Livingston jumped 11 points clear at the top and are now almost certain to lift the League One trophy. Mullen, for his display, is this week’s star man.

Development Squad on the Move

Development Squad Win 5-2

In what’s turning out to be a remarkable first season for Brian Kerr development squad they took a step closer to 3rd place in the league last night with a 5-2 win over rivals Clyde in a rousing 2nd half performance. After a challenging first half performance the development squad quickly got into gear in the second and right from the start went ahead with a great move and goal from Liam McGuigan, this was shortly follow by his second with a header at the back post to take the Rover 2-0 up.

Half way through the 2nd half a Rovers defensive mistake let Clyde back in with a penalty chance which they converted to make it 2-1, quickly another penalty was conceded and Clyde drew level from the converted penalty take.

While many teams would have folded not this team, in what turned out to be their best period of play the Rovers turned up the pressure and it was Clyde who conceded a penalty, but while looking confident Gallagher failed to convert.

While being slightly upstaged by his fellow striker Liam McGuigan scoring 2 goals it was the time for Ryan McManus to put the game out of Clyde’s reach with 3 goals in 20 minutes, some great football from the striker seen him turn and hit 3 goals from all angles within the box, some great football on the night and the Rovers Development Squad continue their great run.

The win put rovers up to 3rd place 1 point behind Ayr, the also have the advantage of a game in hand and look to increase their winning run against Morton on 7.30 Kick Off Thursday 30th March 2017.

Goal Scorers: Ryan McManus 3 – Liam McGuigan 2
