Montrose 2-2 Stirling Albion

Joshua Flood grabbed a late equaliser as Stirling Albion earned a draw against Scottish Third Division promotion play-off hopefuls Montrose.

The visitors got off to a flying start when Mark Ferry poked the ball home following some good work by Jordan White after just seven minutes.

The Gable Endies responded just after the half-hour mark when Martin Boyle lashed in a fine shot from the edge of the penalty area.

Terry Masson almost headed the hosts into the lead midway through the second half but could not beat visiting goalkeeper Samuel Filler.

However, they did edge ahead for the first time after 66 minutes, Richard McIntosh steering home a neat finish after a smart pass from Boyle.

The Binos pushed forward in search of an equaliser and got their reward three minutes from time when substitute Flood turned in Scott Davidson's cross for a share of the spoils.
