Albion Rovers 2-0 Annan Athletic

Albion Rovers claimed their second home win of the season as they beat Annan.

Albion went ahead in the League Two game after Peter Watson inadvertently sent a header into his own goal.

Annan had been unlucky not to be in the lead after hitting the post and the crossbar through Alistair Love and Andrew Mitchell.

Mark Shankland also hit the bar before his smart finish from inside the area sealed the victory to take Albion up to sixth in the table.
