A late three-goal fest in the final 15 minutes from Stirling moved the Binos up to third as they left Elgin victors.

The home side took the lead after half-an-hour when Sean Crighton headed home his third goal of the season.

City doubled their lead through Dennis Wyness but Jordan White's strike gave the visitors hope of recovery.

Kieran McAnespie heading his side level, and White fired a low shot past Raymond Jellema to complete the impressive late comeback.
