Stirling Albion 3-1 Arbroath

Stirling Albion claimed their third straight win as they saw off Arbroath with 10 men at Forthbank.

The visitors struck midway through the first half, with Bobby Linn slotting in his sixth goal of the season.

The hosts levelled after the break as Willie Robertson knocked in a David Verlaque's cross from close range.

Binos lost goalkeeper Chris Smith to a straight red card but battled on as Ross Smith added a header before Steven Doris converted a late penalty.
