Annan Athletic 4-4 Stirling Albion

Ali Love scored an injury-time penalty to secure a valuable point for Annan Athletic in a thrilling draw with Stirling Albion.

Scott Davisdon rifled home the hosts' opener, Kieran McAnespie levelled with a free-kick, and Andrew Mitchell's tidy finish put Annan in front at the break.

Sandy Cunningham equalised only for Kenny MacKay to fire Annan ahead again.

Jordan White and Ross Forsyth turned the match in Stirling's favour before Love's late leveller from the spot.
