Weir and White strike as Binos bounce back

Goals from Graham Weir and Jordan White saw Scottish Third Division strugglers Stirling come from behind to beat Annan 2-1 at Forthbank.

The visitors drew first blood when Scott Chaplain scored his eighth goal of the season from close range after a mix-up in the Stirling penalty area, but they weren't ahead for long.

The Binos equalised six minutes later when Weir found the bottom left of Alex Mitchell's goal from with a strike from inside the area.

The hosts then took the lead five minutes after the break when striker White tapped home from the middle of the area after good work from Gary Thom on the right wing.

Annan pushed for an equaliser in the closing stages of the game but failed to trouble goalkeeper David Crawford.
