Annan Athletic 3-2 East Stirlingshire

Two late goals from Peter Weatherson earned Annan Athletic victory over East Stirlingshire in Scottish League Two.

Steven Swinglehurst gave the hosts the lead early on with a header.

David McKenna swept in David Greenhill's cross to level and Christopher Townsley headed home another Greenhill delivery.

But Weatherson nodded in after Junior Ogen's shot had come back off the crossbar and then headed home a Stuart McColm's cross for the winner.
