East Stirlingshire 1-4 Albion Rovers

Ten-man Albion Rovers moved up to second in Scottish League Two and remain six points behind Arbroath after beating East Stirlingshire.

Mark McGuigan and Scott Chaplain netted for Rovers to put them two up.

David McKenna pulled one back for Shire from the penalty spot following a foul by Josh Mullin on Neil McCabe.

Chaplain's second preceded Jamie Pollock's dismissal for abusive language before the break and McGuigan doubled his tally late on.
