Stirling Albion 2-2 Forfar Athletic

Alex Cunningham's second-half double helped Stirling Albion to a hard-earned point at Forthbank.

Omar Kader fired Forfar in front after 12 minutes when he latched onto Danny Denholm's pass to finish neatly.

Steven Doris and Darren Smith came close to levelling but Gavin Swankie shot the visitors further ahead from six yards.

Cunningham reduced the deficit with a crafty curling shot and equalised from close range on 86 minutes.
