Stirling Albion 0-1 Brechin City

Alan Trouten converted a second-half penalty to secure victory for Brechin at bottom side Stirling.

The hosts, who have not won at home this season, had first-half chances but neither Alex Cunningham, Lewis Coult or Gordon Smith could convert.

City's best chance fell to Colin Hamilton but keeper Greg Paterson saved well from his header.

There was no denying Trouten, however, when he scored from the spot after being brought down by Ross McGeachie.
