Stirling Albion 1-2 Raith Rovers

Scottish Football League

John Baird's late header helped Raith beat Stirling and stay a point behind First Division leaders Dunfermline.

The visitors went ahead after 15 minutes from an Allan Walker free-kick.

Albion were almost level just four minutes later when Gordon Smith's 18-yard effort was saved by Rovers keeper Andrew McNeil.

Stirling did eventually equalise in the 63rd minute, Joshua Flood firing home, but Baird nodded home 10 minutes from the end to seal Raith's victory.
