Stirling Albion 1 v 1 Stranraer

Stranrear were this weeks opponents down at Forthbank for the Binos, thankfully the Weather was much improved on last weeks rain. In fact for November the conditions were great for football as the teams took to the Forthbank turf. Today the Binos welcomed two former Binos to Forthbank, Chris “Tiff” Aitken and “Lord” Steven Bell. It was good to see them back at Forthbank shame it was for the opposition.

The first half started out well for both sides and after 23 minutes the Binos found themselves in the lead thanks to a deflected Phil Johnston shot. We only held the lead until the 35 minute when Stranraer were awarded a free kick which was taken by Chris Aitken and turned goal wards by Steven Bell to equalise. A typical move Binos have seen many a time at Forthbank it use to be the start of celebration for us but today Aitken and Bell were the enemy and had deflated the Binos in their usual style.

Half-time: Stirling Albion 1 v 1 Stranraer

The second half was an entertaining if not frustrating period with both sides having chances to take the lead but neither could manage to grab that elusive winner.
