Stirling Albion 2-1 Berwick Rangers

Ten-man Berwick Rangers fell to the bottom of League Two after letting slip an early lead at Forthbank.

The visitors went in front when Blair Henderson found the bottom corner from the edge of the penalty area.

Ross Smith levelled with a strong header soon after.

Berwick had Jordan McGregor sent off for a challenge on Darren Smith on 15 minutes and Sean Dickson slotted home the resultant spot-kick to seal maximum points for the Binos.
