East Stirlingshire 3-1 Queen's Park

Kevin Nesbit marked his East Stirling debut with a double as they got the better of high-flying Queen's Park.

Nesbit swept in the opener before the Spiders' Jordan Moore had a penalty saved by Richard Barnard.

It was 2-0 after the break when David McKenna nodded home, but Vincent Berry pulled one back for the visitors.

The home side made sure of the points in the closing stages when Nesbit completed his double with a close range finish.
