Stirling Albion boss Stuart McLaren says Willie Robertson and Ross McMillan could both feature when the Binos take on Arbroath on Saturday.

Robertson has captained the side in the absence of McMillan, who has been out since November with a hamstring injury, but was substituted during the draw with Queen’s Park with a calf knock.

McLaren told Stirling News Sport: “Willie Robertson still has to recover a bit from his calf problem so we will monitor him this week. By the end of Thursday we should be able to make a decision. Ross McMillan is reasonably close to being back to full fitness and we will make a decision on whether or not to include him in the squad.”

McLaren admitted that letting Sandy Cunningham leave on loan had been a difficult decision, and urged the striker and the rest of the squad to prove they deserve new contracts for next season.

He said: “Sandy has been a relatively good performer with the first team but he was finding it more difficult to break into the starting team. Sandy needs regular game time to press his claim for a contract next season.

“We have spoken to a couple of players about their futures. What they have done up to this point will come into consideration, but what they do over the next few months will effectively make our decision for us.”
