There seems to be a lot of speculation concerning Andy Goram, his 800th game and whether or not both our keepers are fit. The information I have says that Lee Hollis may be out due to an accident at home "dropped a telly on his foot" and Stephen Robertson is suffering from knee problems. so it may actually happen.

Graeme Holmes will also be missing this weekend after the horrendous tackle in last weeks game against Stranraer. Sandy may also be with out Paul Lovering suffering from more or less skint knees, that are getting no time to heal he may have to miss this one.

In better news Brian McPhee returns to the squad after his suspension.

Opponents News

Ross County have appointed a new manager in Scott Leitch. Ex-Motherwell team captain he is a surprise appointment to the County team. No matter the situation however he is a new manager and the current players at County will either be out to impress or not giving a shit about the new appointment this late in the season.

Leitch's first job will be to inspire Joe Malin their 19 year old keeper as Ian McAldon is out.

Kevin Toner took charge of our three - two win over Dundee, when Brian Prunty went on to score his first heart trick for Airdrie. We had no bookings in that game against Dundee's three yellows.


A win would be nice as we move towards the end of the season.

2 v 1 to Airdrie.
