East Stirlingshire 1-4 Albion Rovers

League Two leaders East Stirlingshire crashed to a second successive heavy home loss as Albion Rovers

John Coughlin's side, who were well beaten by Peterhead in their last outing at Ochilview Park, again shipped four goals.

The hosts fell behind after just two minutes as Michael Dunlop headed in from Gary Phillips' corner.

Chris Dallas then nodded in from Darren Miller's free-kick to double the lead before he tapped in from six yards from another set piece five minutes before the break.

Paul Quinn pulled one back for the Shire from the penalty spot after he was fouled by Ciaran Donnelly but the striker was dismissed three minutes from time for violent conduct.

Rovers added a late fourth as Mark McGuigan slotted into the bottom corner from close range.
