East Stirling 0-1 Alloa Athletic

Scottish Football League

A Ben Gordon header in first-half injury-time was enough for Alloa to claim the points at East Stirling.

Graeme Holmes should have done better when he volleyed straight at Shire keeper Callum Antell from close-range.

Darren Young and Kevin Cawley both squandered great headed chances but Gordon showed them how it should be done when he met Ryan Harding's cross.

Shire pressed after the interval and almost levelled when Steven Jackson rattled the crossbar from 20 yards.
