Stirling Albion 2-2 Airdrieonians

Airdrieonians grabbed a late equaliser to earn a draw, denying Albion Rovers their first win in four games.

Dale Fulton broke the deadlock for the home side with a wonderful strike from outside the box.

The visitors levelled after the break through a Scott Fraser free-kick, which sailed into the bottom left corner.

Gordon Smith scored from Fulton's floated corner but Airdrie quickly equalised as Marc Fitzpatrick netted from close range.
