Annan 0-1 East Stirlingshire


Ten-man East Stirlingshire held firm to record a deserved win against out-of-sorts Annan Athletic.

The home side started brightly and Mike Jack, David Cox, Kevin Neilson and John MacBeth all missed good chances.

Shire's Steven McGuire prodded an effort just wide after beating keeper Craig Summersgill to a loose ball.

McGuire's superb 20-yard strike put Shire ahead after 52 minutes, but they had David Dunn sent off three minutes later for a second booking.
