Albion Rovers 2-1 East Stirlingshire

Ryan Donnelly hit a double as Albion Rovers boss James Ward celebrated his new deal with a win over East Stirlingshire.

Fresh from penning a contract extension that will keep him at the club until at least the summer of 2015, Ward saw his side take an early lead.

Donnelly's close-range finish was followed by another in the second half as Rovers took control.

Scott Maxwell replied to give Shire hope but they could not level.
