Berwick Rangers 3-0 East Stirlingshire

Berwick comfortably beat East Stirling to move within a point of the Scottish League Two play-off places.

Scott Maxwell, who joined Berwick from The Shire last summer, scored the opener when he finished Andy Russell's cross.

Minutes later it was 2-0, Steven Notman nodding home a Paul Willis free-kick.

Berwick secured all three points early in the second half when Ross Drummond netted his first goal for the club from Russell's cross.
