Bottom two in stalemate

Stirling remained bottom of the Third Division table after a 1-1 draw with ninth-placed East Stirling.

Both sides found the net in the first 10 minutes of the second period and the draw prolonged the visitors' winless run to four games.

Graham Weir's effort from outside the area was well held by Grant Hay while Andrew Stirling fizzed an effort wide from 30 yards for the visitors in a quiet first half.

The second period came to life quickly as Kieran McAnespie's inswinging corner was headed into the net by Weir in the 47th minute.

But the lead lasted just eight minutes as Stirling was brought down by Stephen Day in the area and Kevin Turner's penalty was dispatched down the middle to level.

With 15 minutes left Mark Ferry's effort from inside the area was well saved by Hay while Kevin Turner's shot from close range was bravely blocked by David Crawford at the other end.
