Albion Rovers 3-2 East Stirlingshire

Albion Rovers held off East Stirlingshire to claim all three points in their Scottish League Two encounter.

Rovers took the lead when Gary Phillips nodded home Mark McGuigan's cross and Chris Dallas doubled the lead with a close-range effort.

Paul Quinn's strike reduced Shire's deficit but Scott Chaplain slid in to net a third for the hosts.

Quinn converted a penalty after Graeme MacGregor had been fouled by Phillips but it proved only to be consolation.
