Stirling Albion 2-1 East Stirlingshire

Stirling Albion scored twice late on to come from behind, beating East Stirlingshire and leapfrogging their rivals.

Shire striker Max Wright steered Callum Gallagher's free-kick low into the net after 40 minutes.

Albion substitute Craig Comrie smashed his first touch beyond keeper Grant Hay with 10 minutes to go.

Mark Ferry, who had been brought on just before Comrie, complete a dramatic comeback with a curling effort.
