Berwick Rangers 2-0 East Stirlingshire

First-half strikes from Darren Lavery and Dylan Easton gave Berwick their third league victory against East Stirlingshire this season.

Neil Janczyk gave Lavery a sight of goal 10 minutes into the game at Shielfield Park and the in-form striker made no mistake with the finish to notch his 11th goal of the campaign.

Janczyk was the provider again seven minutes later when he set up Easton to volley home from inside the area.

Ian Little's side had only recorded back-to-back league wins on one occasion this term, but continued to cause the Shire defence problems before half-time with Lavery's 39th-minute effort blocked by Grant Hay.

Michael Hunter tried his luck from distance to get the visitors back into the contest but Ian McCaldon denied his goalbound strike after 66 minutes.

Defeat leaves John Coughlin's men without a win in eight games.
