East Stirlingshire 1-0 Stirling Albion

East Stirlingshire earned victory courtesy of Iain Thomson's penalty.

Thomson fired home after Ross McGeachie hauled down David Greenhill.

The Binos pinned East Stirling back in the second half, with Lee Hamilton seeing his shot come back off the bar but their hopes were soon dashed.

David McClune was shown a straight red card for a high-footed challenge on Ricky Miller and then Kieran McAnespie was also dismissed.
