Stenhousemuir have a point to prove against Albion Rovers.

The Warriors turned in their most abject display in the past few seasons by toiling at Cliftonhill earlier this month, and boss Martyn Corrigan is looking for a reaction.

“We do have a point to prove,” he told The Falkirk Herald. “They have been a team that we have dropped too man points to this season.

“We haven’t won in three games, and we know they will be hard-working and that record will buoy them up a bit.”

Joe Mbu had just been signed when the Ochilview outfit travelled to Coatbridge but though the final score was 4-3 it belied the home side’s supremacy, masked by late goals from John Gemmell and loan signing from Dundee, Jamie Reid.

The Kaiser may have yet another new name on the team sheet having snapped up Chris Smith from St Mirren.

The goalkeeper will provide competition for Callum Reidford and Dean Shaw.

“He boasts a lot of experience and he will command his box well,” added the Stenhousemuir boss.

“It’s another example of the depth in the squad we have now that we have Chris, Callum and Dean, it’ll help them all out working together.”

The former Dunfermline stopper, who has played for Scotland at under-21 level and appeared more than 90 times for St Mirren, has fallen behind goalkeepers Grant Adam and Craig Samson in the Paisley pecking order. He replaces fellow keeper Connor Fairley whose short term deal has ended.
