Stirling Albion 2-1 Peterhead

Andrew Stirling's late goal gave Stirling Albion their first home victory in 10 months against Peterhead.

The League One bottom side fell behind when Rory McAllister's deflected free-kick evaded Callum Reidford.

Lewis Coult levelled matters with a right-foot drive - his first goal for the club.

And, after Gary McDonald had hit the crossbar for Peterhead, Coult set up Stirling for the tap-in that proved to be the winning goal.
