Max Wright scores and then sees red as East Stirling win at Annan

Annan slipped to fourth place in Ladbrokes Scottish League Two as they fell to a 3-1 defeat at home to 10-man East Stirling.

Lewis Guy was twice denied by goalkeeper Darren Dolan before the visitors took the lead, Max Wright hitting a superb shot from outside the area which went in via the upright.

Wright's afternoon took a turn for the worse five minutes before the break when he was sent off for a reckless challenge on Rabin Omar.

Ben Jago skimmed the crossbar with a shot at the start of the second half as Annan started the second period brightly, and they levelled shortly afterwards.

Substitute Smart Osadolor had been on the pitch a matter of seconds when he converted Josh Todd's cross.

Osadolor missed in front of goal and Guy hit a post, only for East Stirling to snatch the lead from a set piece, Kris Faulds scoring from close range.

Gavin McMillan sealed the points for the rock-bottom visitors with a header from Lloyd Kinnaird's cross.
