Mark Ferry scored a late winner as Stirling dented Berwick's play-off hopes with a 1-0 win at the Forthbank Stadium.
The hosts went close to an early lead on 13 minutes but Marc McCallum's fine save denied Jordan White.
The Black & Gold threatened through Dean Hoskins and Darren Lavery but could not find a way through.
Damian Gielty had their best chance of the first half but could only shoot straight at Samuel Filler just after the half-hour mark.
Scott Dalziel went closer still immediately after the restart but Filler again held firm to keep his effort out.
But with the game seemingly heading for a stalemate Albion winger Scott Davidson picked out Ferry who volleyed a clinical finish into the corner with three minutes remaining.
White could have added further gloss deep into stoppage time but failed to beat McCallum with a low drive.
