Peterhead 2-1 Stirling Albion

Peterhead came from behind with two goals in three second-half minutes to beat Scottish League One bottom side Stirling Albion.

Albion took an early lead when Craig Wedderburn scored on the rebound after Chris Smith's header had struck the post.

Rory McAllister equalised from the penalty spot following Ross McGeachie's foul on David Cox.

And James Stevenson's low, left-foot finish gave the hosts all three points.
