Stirling Albion 2-1 Berwick Rangers

Two late goals secured a comeback victory for Stirling Albion against 10-man Berwick Rangers and left the latter five points off the play-off zone.

Darren Lavery opened the scoring for Berwick from just inside the penalty area.

But the hosts lost Paul Currie when the forward was red-carded for swearing at referee Nick Walsh before half-time.

And David Weatherston's tap-in and Alex Cunningham's header turned the match on its head.
