Annan Athletic's Scottish League Two title hopes ended with defeat by 10-man East Stirlingshire.

Shire's Peter Watson saw red when he brought down Max Wright in the box but his resulting spot-kick was saved by Kenny Arthur.

Blair Henderson then fired Annan ahead but Wright's strike levelled matters.

Wright had a hand in the winning goal, which came late on. Kevin Turner found the net with a shot from inside the box.
