East Stirling 1-4 Albion Rovers:- Chaplain at the double for Albion
Category : Match Reports
Scott Chaplain’s first-half double helped 10-man Albion hold on to win 4-1 at East Stirling. Mark McGuigan put the visitors into an early lead and it was doubled after quarter of an hour, when Chaplain fired across goal and past Richard Barnard.
David McKenna pulled one back for the home side from the penalty spot before Chaplain found space in the box to slot in his second of the match.
The Wee Rovers’ Jamie Pollock was dismissed before the interval for abusive language and East Stirling nearly capitalised on the man advantage as Neil McCabe thrashed a good chance wide in the early stages of the second half. McKenna could have had another when he found space in the box but he sliced his effort off target. McGuigan doubled his tally eight minutes from time to seal Albion the win, which takes them up to second in Scottish League Two.
