Today we make the trip to Coatbridge to face Albion Rovers in Ladbrokes SPFL League 2.
OPPONENTS: ALBION ROVERS
Despite sitting at the foot of the table, Albion have picked up their performances since the start of the season and are coming off the back of losing out narrowly to Peterhead at Balmoor. Additionally and for the second time in three weeks, we will be facing a team under new management, as Rovers have appointed Hibs legend Kevin Harper as their new boss. City old boy Lewis McLear has been in good form of late for Albion so it is sure to be a very tough match this afternoon.
City will wear white shirts with black shorts and white socks, Albion Rovers are scheduled to wear all their home colours.
Admission prices for today’s match will be £12 for adults, £6 concessions with under 12s free when accompanied by a paying adult.
The news on the injury front remains fairly similar, with long term absentees Josh Walker, John Dunn and Danny Handling remaining out of contention. From last week’s squad however Marc Laird returns from his layoff.
Our most recent meeting with Albion Rovers was in the Irn Bru Cup first round. Albion visited Ainslie Park having lost the opening league match 4-0 but showed real desire taking the lead in the match through John Cunningham after only ten minutes. City had the bulk of the play but didn’t get back on top until the returning Scott Shepherd smashes home the equaliser on his second debut for the club. A Blair Henderson brace sealed victory for City and set up our winning run, which ended last weekend against Clyde.
