Stirling Albion 0-0 Elgin City

Elgin City slipped out of the League Two promotion play-off zone with a goalless draw at Stirling Albion.

Stirling's Lewis McLear struck the post early, while at the other end team-mate Steven Doris cleared a Jamie Duff header off his own line.

The Binos reasserted themselves and Sean Dickson forced City goalkeeper Mark Hurst into a spectacular save.

After the break, Darren Smith made a burst through the middle for the hosts but fired just wide.
