Annan Athletic moved to within touching distance of securing a play-off spot with victory over Albion Rovers in Scottish League Two.

Josh Todd rose to head Andrew Mitchell's corner into the top-corner to give the visitors the lead.

Another Mitchell corner caused havoc and Kenneth Mackay doubled the advantage when he poked home Blair Henderson's knock-down.

Annan will secure a play-off spot if they beat Stirling Albion on Saturday.
