It was game on when Stirling's Kurtis Roberts made it 2-1 in the 73rd minute but Tommy Goss sealed the win for Annan in the 85th minute.

The top-of-the-table clash between Forfar and Kelty Hearts finished 2-2, with Kelty still topping the table.

Forfar took the lead in the 17th minute when Matthew Aitken converted a penalty following a clash with the goalkeeper. Nathan Austin scored five minutes later for Kelty before Craig Thomson put Forfar 2-1 up on the cusp of half-time.

The Loons could not keep hold of their lead and Austin struck again in the second half to get his brace and a point.

The fixture between Cowdenbeath and Stranraer was postponed as the Blue Brazil did not have a sufficient amount of players due to self-isolation. An SPFL spokesperson said a further update would be provided "in due course".
