Stenny in relegation play-off

Stenhousemuir conceded two goals in the final two minutes to lose 3-2 at bottom club Stirling and are consigned to the relegation play-off.

The visitors required a victory to give themselves a chance of definite safety and appeared on course as they led 2-1 with two minutes remaining, but Ayr's 3-1 win at Forfar meant the visitors would have had to play-off anyway.

Stirling, already relegated, fell behind to Colin McMenamin's 13th-minute header, but equalised through Gordon Smith six minutes later.

Stenhousemuir striker Paul McMullan's 36th-minute shot hit the crossbar, but the visitors gave themselves hope when substitute Craig Sutherland put them ahead with 14 minutes remaining.

Stirling looked to be heading for a 13th home league defeat of the season, but Ross Forsyth fired an 89th-minute equaliser and in stoppage-time striker Andrew Stirling curled home the winner.
