Stirling Albion 2-2 Elgin City

Play-off hopefuls Stirling were twice forced to come from behind to earn a share of the points against Elgin.

Shane Sutherland gave Barry Wilson's side the lead, and Jordan White saw a penalty cannon back off both posts.

But Albion were soon level when White curled the ball into the corner only for Elgin to train the lead shortly after half-time through Craig Gunn.

Craig Comrie equalised to set up a frantic finish, and Daniel Ashe nearly won it in injury time but shot wide.
