Stenhousemuir will look to bounce back from their battering by Dunfermline when they travel to Cliftonhill on Saturday to take on Albion Rovers.

Stenny’s 100 per cent home record bit the dust in spectacular style as the Fifers went nap with a 5-0 win.

And Warriors boss Brown Ferguson admitted that he could have little complaint about the outcome.

He said: “Sometimes you have to hold our hands up and say you were beaten by the better team and that was one of the best displays I have seen from any away team at Ochilview.

“Yes, there were elements we could have done better and areas where we contributed to our own downfall.

“But they put us under severe pressure with the way they played and when you bring all these factors together we couldn’t really argue.

“They are a good team who put us to the sword, although we’re not the only team they have done that to and we won’t be the last.

“It’s not the first heavy defeat we have suffered, but when we have lost in that fashion it’s been to the top three teams in the league and we have been picking up points against the teams round about us in the league.

“If we continue to do the we will have a decent points tally.”

Ferguson will be looking for a reaction from his players against Albion Rovers as his side strive to improve a poor away record.

He said: “The main thing is for us is to get a reaction from last week’s defeat. The players have done it before and that’s what we are looking for again.

“We haven’t done as well away from home and this is a chance to improve on that.

“It’s the consistency of performance we need to improve on.”

Meanwhile former Stenny midfielder Lee Gallacher, who was released at the end of last season, has joined Super League Premier junior side Kirkintilloch Rob Roy.
