Queen's Park hold on for points

Anthony McParland's second-half goal helped Queen's Park to a 3-2 win over Stirling.

Aidan Connolly put the visitors in front in extraordinary circumstances when his cross from the right wing beat everyone in the Stirling box and ended up in the back of the net from 25 yards out.

Connolly then turned provider as Queen's Park extended their lead in the 52nd minute when Paul McGinn latched onto his pass before firing past Stirling keeper Mark Peat from 12 yards out.

The Binos hit back six minutes later when Mark Ferry found the top corner from the right side of the area, before McParland scored a free-kick from 25 yards out in the 66th minute to make it 3-1 .

Stirling's Mark Ferry headed in from close range in the 75th minute to set up a tense finale but Queen's Park held on to seal the win.
