Queen's Park 2-1 Stirling Albion

Anthony Quinn converted a late penalty as Queen's Park maintained their play-off push with a narrow win over bottom-placed Stirling Albion.

After Scott Davidson had looked to have earned the struggling visitors a point by cancelling out Aidan Connolly's 47th-minute opener, midfielder Quinn netted his seventh goal of the season from 12 yards with just a minute remaining.

In a first half of few chances, Queen's Park striker Jamie Longworth fired straight at goalkeeper Mark Peat in the 20th minute, while the visitors saw Jordan White fail to direct his header on target.

Connolly broke the deadlock three minutes after the interval, firing into the bottom corner from 12 yards.

However, Davidson equalised 10 minutes later with a shot that flew into the top corner.

The hosts secured the points in the 89th minute when Quinn fired in his spot-kick after Greig McDonald fouled substitute Ian Watt in the area.
