East Stirling hit back for victory

East Stirling scored three times in the last 20 minutes to beat Stirling 3-1 and secure their first victory of the season.

The visitors had to play with 10 men for the majority of the game after Scott Davidson was shown a red card for violent conduct in the 27th minute.

But the 10 men went ahead 10 minutes into the second half. Mark Ferry collected Graham Weir's pass in his stride before drilling a left-footed effort past visiting goalkeeper Grant Hay.

Scott Maxwell equalised for East Stirling with a low drive from just inside the penalty area in the 70th minute.

David Greenhill then headed the home side into the lead 11 minutes later.

Nathan Shepherd secured the three points in stoppage time as he found the top corner of Mark Peat's goal.

Dunlop in line for Shire bow

Defender Michael Dunlop could make his East Stirling debut against Stirling after joining on loan from Forfar.

Craig Donaldson, Jamie Glasgow and Paul Quinn have all been ruled out.

Boss John Coughlin wants his side to build on a fine showing against Cowdenbeath last weekend in the Ramsdens Cup.

He said: "We had spells in that game where we played really well and could have sneaked in front. We now need to play to that standard in a Division Three game and start picking up points.

"Stirling have a very useful squad so we will need to transfer our cup-tie approach into this game."

Stirling are without their three most experienced players.

David McClune, Kieran McAnespie and Shaun Fagan have all been ruled out with injuries.

Striker Bradley Coyne remains out with a long-term knee problem and the club have also been hit with a virus.

But manager Greig McDonald said: "We have used some of our younger players in games already this season and they have not let anyone down.

"I am sure that they will be motivated by the extra spice a local encounter brings. East Stirling have played really well in cup ties this season but struggled in the league and hopefully that will still be the case after this game."
