Montrose 1-1 Stirling Albion

Craig Beattie netted a last-gasp equaliser to secure a draw in an entertaining League Two encounter.

Montrose were heading for a first win in six matches when Graham Webster broke the deadlock in the 58th minute with a curling effort.

Beattie fired home a free-kick in the 90th minute to extend Stirling's unbeaten run to four matches.

Stirling were also indebted to the performance of Chris Smith after the goalkeeper denied striker Gary Fraser.
