Stirling turn up heat and relegate Clyde

STIRLING Albion maintained their pressure on Second Division leaders Alloa by winning 2-1 at Broadwood to move within two points of the Wasps with a game in hand. It was not such good news for Clyde, however, with the defeat relegating the Cumbernauld side.

The Forthbank side took the lead after four minutes when Scott Robertson rose to nod in a David O'Brien cross, but Clyde levelled after 20 minutes when Willie Sawyers shot home. Albion had the chance to hit back instantly, but Callum Reidford kept out a Chris Aitken penalty. Iain Russell, who played for Alloa on-loan earlier this season, headed the winner from an Andy Gibson cross with ten minutes left.

Brechin hit back from three goals down to draw 3-3 against a Cowdenbeath side that had raced into a two-goal lead after just six minutes.

Gareth Wardlaw turned in a Paul McQuade cross with less than two minutes gone with defender Darren McGregor firing home a shot from 20 yards to make it two with Wardlaw making it three when he slotted home just before the half-hour mark.

Brechin roared back and goal machine Rory McAllister pulled two goals back in the space of three minutes at the start of the second half with Latvian Krisjanis Vallers netting the equaliser with four minutes left.
