Stirling toast late double salvo

Stirling scored twice in the final 10 minutes as they came from behind to beat East Stirling 2-1 and leapfrog their rivals in the table.

The points looked to be heading back east until Craig Comrie levelled before fellow substitute Mark Ferry sent the home fans into delirium with a stoppage-time winner.

East Stirling striker Max Wright brought the game to life after an uneventful first 40 minutes when he steered Callum Gallagher's free-kick low into the net.

Stirling came out firing at the start of the second half but looked to be heading for defeat until Comrie, on the field for all of 30 seconds, smashed his first touch beyond goalkeeper Grant Hay with 10 minutes to go.

And it was left to Ferry, who had been brought on seven minutes before Comrie, to complete a dramatic comeback in the second minute of added time with a curling effort which left Hay with no chance.
