Annan Athletic 1-2 East Stirlingshire

East Stirlingshire continued to enjoy their travels as they consigned Annan Athletic to defeat.

The Shire have now avoided defeat in their last four games on the road.

In a goalless first half it was the visitors who came closest to breaking the deadlock, Paul Quinn's long-range effort pushed away by Alex Mitchell.

The visitors took the lead four minutes after the break. Andrew Stirling found Jamie Glasgow, who fired past Mitchell from the right side of the area for his third goal of the season.

And the lead was soon doubled. Stirling was again the provider and Jordan Holt drove a low shot into the bottom corner from just inside the box.

The Black and Golds pulled one back with 11 minutes left as Daniel Orsi steered Michael Daly's ball into the net from close range.

But Annan were unable to find a late leveller and they extended their winless run to four matches.
