Stirling Albion 2-1 Annan Athletic

Annan Athletic dropped out of the play-off places after losing to Stirling Albion in Scottish League Two.

Albion went ahead early on when Sean Dickson and Steven Doris combined to set up Moses Olanrewaju to convert.

Peter Weatherson twice headed off target and had a shot well saved by Stirling goalkeeper Cameron Binnie.

David Verlaque's effort was cleared off the Annan line before Ross Kavanagh struck the hosts' second, Josh Todd firing a late consolation for Annan.
