Stirling Albion kept up the pressure on Division Two leaders Morton with a win at Central Park.
On-loan striker Robert Snodgrass scored his third goal in three games when he cut in from the right flank and drilled home a shot from 20 yards.
The lead was doubled after the break when David O'Brien's cross took a deflection and looped into the net.
Liam Buchanan hauled one back when he slid at the back post after good work from Scott Dalziel.
