Philip Johnston effort enough as Stirling edge leaders Annan
Leaders Annan saw their Ladbrokes Scottish League Two title bid suffer a blow with a 1-0 defeat away to Stirling.
Annan's best efforts of the first half came towards the end of the first 45 minutes, Josh Todd firing just wide following a breakaway move and Matthew Flynn shooting to the right from outside the box.
Stirling's Mark Lamont was just off target with a shot from outside the box which was just wide of the top corner as the home side gave a view of things to come.
The home side went ahead after 76 minutes when Philip Johnston scored from close range and - try as they might - the leaders could not score an equaliser.
