TODD LUMSDEN hopes Albion Rovers can make the most of their games in hand as they fight for their lives at the foot of the Irn-Bru Second Division.

The Coatbridge side lost further ground to Stranraer as they went down 3-0 to Queen of the South on Saturday and have a 12-point gap to reel in if they are to avoid relegation, writes Chris Jack.

They have midweek clashes with Forfar (tonight) and Brechin, and a possible third match, which Lumsden knows will be crucial. He said: "We might have three midweek games on the trot so it is a good opportunity to get some points on the board and back in the hunt."
