Stirling Albion 3-4 Greenock Morton

Greenock Morton completed a stunning comeback against Stirling Albion to move to within two points of Scottish League One leaders Stranraer.

Bottom side Stirling moved into the lead early on through Alex Cunningham's header and though Joe McKee levelled, Ross McGeachie shot Albion ahead again.

Stirling's third arrived after the break through Angus Beith.

However, a goal from Declan McManus before and after Craig Wedderburn's own goal ensured victory for Morton.
