Goalless stalemate for Albion
Albion missed out on the chance to close the gap on the leaders after a goalless draw with Annan.
The hosts started the night three points off the pace but could not break down a resilient Annan side with the best away record in the division.
John Gemmell spurned one of the best chances of the opening exchanges when he blasted over from close range.
Both sides struggled to find top gear and Chris Boyle`s mis-directed free-kick summed up a poor first half.
Kevin Neilson scored Annan`s winner in their last match at Montrose but even his six-yard header was wayward in the 80th minute.
The visitors looked happy to settle for a point, although all three would have sent them level with their opponents.
