Following a hard-fought victory in the Scottish Cup against Albion Rovers, Bonnyrigg Rose aims to maintain the positive momentum from last Saturday when they make the trip to Ochilview Park to take on table-toppers Stenhousemuir.

It was the Warriors who came out on top In the previous clash between the two sides as an Edin Lynch goal was all that separated the two sides at NDP the first time around.

Having enjoyed two wins from the last two competitive games the Bonnyrigg Rose faithful will be anticipating a competitive match-up. however, Stenhousemuir are unbeaten in their last 9 cinch League Two fixtures, with their only loss in the last 10 games coming in a shock Scottish Cup second round loss to Brora Rangers.

Manager Robbie Horn has fielded the same starting eleven for the past two fixtures and to good effect with the change of shape wielding two victories. Reintroducing Bonnyrigg Rose club captain Jonny Stewart to add some experience to the squad as well as adding the physical prowess of Smart Osadolor up top has massively benefitted the Rose in the previous two fixtures.

Top performers last week such as Paddy Martin, Conor Doan and player-of-the-match against the Wee Rovers in the Scottish Cup Reis Peggie will all be looking to build upon some good performances over the last few weeks and having the aforementioned trio at the top of their game will be vital to success tomorrow afternoon.

Stenny have clinched victories in four of their last five games, scoring an impressive 11 goals during this period. They will be looking to extend the gap to second-placed Peterhead at the summit of cinch League Two whilst Bonnyrigg Rose will be looking to continue to put pressure on the sides in the playoff places.

There is currently no pitch inspection planned at Ochilview Park tomorrow, with tickets available to purchase in advance using the Fanbase app as well as at the gate. There is street parking available around the ground with the away turnstiles opening at 2pm. Tickets are priced at £15 for adults, £10 for concessions and £5 for under 16s
