Berwick Rangers 2-1 Albion Rovers

Berwick secured their first league win in eight with a hard-fought win over Albion Rovers at Shielfield Park.

First-half goals by Damien Gielty and Lee Currie secured victory, despite a Michael Dunlop own goal.

Gielty scored from close range early on and, after Currie's penalty kick had been saved, the midfielder scored on the rebound.

Rovers were given a second-half lifeline when Dunlop put through his own net but Berwick held on.
