Albion Rovers 0-1 East Stirlingshire

East Stirling moved off the bottom of the Scottish League Two table with a 1-0 win at title hopefuls Albion Rovers.

Rovers had the best of the first half but Alistair Love was unable to take any of the chances that came his way.

Maxwell Wright fired an effort off the post as East Stirling came into it after the break.

And the winner arrived when Ross Gilmour nodded home from Connor Greene's delivery after a well worked corner.
