Shepherd guides Stirling to win
A late goal from Nathan Shepherd gave East Stirling a 3-2 victory in a five-goal thriller at Galabank Stadium.
Maxwell Wright opened the scoring for the visitors shortly after 20 minutes as he slotted past Kenny Arthur in the Annan goal.
Scott Davidson's penalty before the break drew the sides level as he drilled it down the middle past East Stirling's Grant Hay following Hay's foul.
The Black and Golds came fast out of the blocks as Andrew Mitchell gave them an early second-half lead, converting Peter Bradley's assist.
But East Striling levelled when Paul Quinn provided David Greenhill, who slotted away his sixth of the season inside the penalty area with just over 15 minutes remaining.
As it looked like the sides may share the points, Shepherd found space inside the box to snatch the win for the visitors three minutes from time.
