Stirling pay penalty as fast-starting Berwick cling on
Stirling missed a penalty in stoppage time as 10-man Berwick held on to record a 1-0 victory.
The hosts went ahead after 24 seconds when Blair Henderson got on the end of Michael McKenna's cross before slotting in from close range.
Stirling pushed for an equaliser in the second half and came close to getting one when Steven Doris sent the ball across the face of goal towards Moses Olanrewaju, but the substitute's effort was superbly blocked by Johnny Fairbairn.
There was late drama as Stirling were awarded a penalty in the second minute of added time after Brian Martin handled in the area.
Martin was given his marching orders, but Stirling were unable to equalise, with Sean Dickson missing from the spot.
