Annan Athletic 1-3 East Stirlingshire

Annan slipped to fourth place in League Two as they fell to a surprise defeat at home to 10-man East Stirlingshire.

Max Wright shot the visitors ahead with a superb shot but was then sent off for a reckless challenge on Rabin Omar.

Annan levelled early in the second half when substitute Smart Osadolor converted Josh Todd's cross.

Shire snatched the lead from a set piece, Kris Faulds scoring from close range, and Gavin McMillan sealed the points for the rock-bottom team.
