Annan Athletic 2-1 Albion Rovers

Josh Todd's late strike earned Annan a narrow win over Albion Rovers, just their third home win of the campaign.

Annan's David Hopkirk found the bottom corner from inside the penalty area with just eight minutes on the clock.

Rovers, unbeaten in nine games, drew level in 70 minutes through Scott Chaplain but created few opportunities to make it three straight league wins.

Then, with just five minutes to go, Todd collected Iain Chisholm's pass and fired a shot into the top corner.
