East Stirlingshire 3-2 Stirling Albion

East Stirlingshire got back to winning ways with a thrilling win over Stirling at Ochilview Park.

The Shire got off to a flying start through David McKenna who slotted home his fourth goal of the season.

Thomas Orr doubled their lead on his debut but Stirling responded as Kevin McKinlay headed in Steven Doris' cross.

McKenna's header put Craig Tully's men 3-1 up and Craig Beattie's goal gave the Binos late hope, but the hosts held on.
