Jordan White's first hat-trick of the season secured Stirling Albion a place in the play-offs with a resounding win over promotion rivals Clyde.

White opened the scoring from the penalty spot with less than a quarter of an hour played.

Ross McKinnon converted from the spot to level by half-time.

But, after White scored with just six minutes left, he nodded another before Phil Johnston rubbed slat in Clyde's wounds in a dramatic finish.

Stirling moved ahead of their opponents into third in the League Two table and now host second-placed Annan Athletic in their League One play-off semi-final first leg on Wednesday.

Clyde must face East Fife, with the side who finished second bottom in League One visiting Cumbernauld in their first leg.
