Stirling Albion 1-1 Stranraer

Stranraer moved into third but missed the chance to go second in Scottish League One after being held by bottom side Stirling Albion.

Stirling took the lead midway through the first half when Phil Johnston's shot deflected over the goalkeeper.

The advantage was short-lived as former Bino Steven Bell connected with a Chris Aitken free-kick at closerange.

Albion goalkeeper Callum Reidford was busy in the second half to keep out several efforts from the visitors.
