Albion Rovers 2-1 Stirling Albion

Stirling Albion missed the chance to go top of Scottish League Two after defeat by Albion Rovers.

Rovers took the lead when Barry Russell's effort from outside the box beat David Crawford.

And Chris Dallas finished neatly from close range to double the hosts' advantage before the break.

The visitors netted with James Bishop's header but Graham Weir's second yellow card reduced Stirling to 10 men and ended their hopes of a comeback.
