Albion Rovers 0-2 Stirling Albion

Two first-half goals gave Stirling Albion a third successive league win as Albion Rovers lost at home.

The visitors threatened through David Weatherston, Chris Smith and Jordan White before going ahead.

White controlled a long ball from Phillip Johnston and tucked away neatly before Weatherston made it two before half-time with a tidy finish.

Ryan Donnelly's shot wide in the second half was as close as Rovers got to scoring.
