Annan Athletic 1-2 Stirling Albion

Stirling Albion remained in the League Two play-off zone after beating fellow promotion chasers Annan Athletic.

Albion took the lead in the first half when David Weatherston fired into the net from a Phillip Johnston cross.

Weatherston converted another Johnston cross after the break as Stirling doubled their advantage.

Blair Henderson's penalty, following Jamie Bishop's handball, reduced Annan's deficit but there was to be no equaliser for the hosts.
