Montrose drew 2-2 away to Elgin City, while Peterhead failed to win a third game in a row after a 1-1 draw at home to Berwick Rangers.

Mark Lamont set up Goodwillie for his first just after the break and the former Scotland striker added the second - his 17th of the season and sixth in five games - from the penalty spot after being brought down by Jamie Pyper.
Former Clyde player-manager MacDonald also grabbed a double - his second in successive games to take his total to five in three outings - as Stirling recorded a fourth straight win.
After Ross McGeachie headed the opener after the break, veteran striker MacDonald had his penalty saved by goalkeeper Alex Mitchell but scored from the rebound before Darren Smith set him up for his second.

Steven Thomson's close-range strike put Berwick, who had lost three games in a row, in front in the first half against Peterhead.
