Scottish League Two: Berwick Rangers 3-2 Annan Athletic

Berwick Rangers moved off the foot of the Scottish League Two table with their first league win since Boxing Day at the expense of Annan Athletic.

The hosts took a deserved lead through Blair Henderson's close-range finish after a fine run by Darren Lavery, who extended the lead from a penalty.

Berwick goalkeeper Kevin Walker was sent off after tackling Josh Todd and Ryan McStay converted the free-kick.

Allan Walker restored the lead on the counter before Stuart McColm's reply.

Victory lifts the Wee Rangers two points above East Stirlingshire, while Annan missed the chance to move above Stirling Albion and Queen's Park into third spot.
