Stirling Albion 1-1 Elgin City

Stirling Albion moved above East Stirlingshire into the play-off places in League Two despite Craig Gunn's late equaliser for Elgin City.

Alex Cunningham gave the Binos the lead four minutes into the second half after latching onto Jordan White's reverse pass and firing past Raymond Jellema.

Elgin grabbed their equaliser after 84 minutes as a Paul Harkins corner was smashed home by Gunn.

Gordon Finlayson's curling effort almost snatched victory for City.

Stirling are now level on points with Shire, three points behind Clyde, with the same goal difference but have score more goals.
