Berwick Rangers 2-0 East Stirlingshire

Second-bottom Berwick Rangers ground out a valuable Scottish League Two win over nine-man East Stirlingshire at Shielfield Park.

Darren Lavery opened the scoring with a neat finish inside the box.

Shire's Michael Bolochoweckyj was red-carded after a dangerous challenge and David Greenhill was also dismissed when he received a second yellow card.

Lee Currie sealed the three points for the hosts in the final minute when he converted a pass from Lavery.
