Scottish League Two roundup: Annan Athletic score late to maintain title push

Scottish League Two leaders Annan Athletic have Stuart McColm to thank as his late finish gives the table-topping side a 1-0 win over visitors Berwick.

Scottish League Two leaders Annan Athletic were thankful to a late goal from Stuart McColm as they claimed a 1-0 victory over Berwick to keep up their march at the top of the table this afternoon.

It had looked like Annan might concede ground at the summit, but McColm made use of a clever pass from Greig McDonald to ensure that his side were able to clinch three points at the death.

East Fife did their best to keep the pressure on the table toppers, as they produced a memorable 5-3 victory over nine-man East Stirlingshire in a game that saw as many as three red cards.

Fife conceded the lead on three separate occasions throughout the game, but they were finally able to seal a slender win thanks partly to a brace from Nathan Austin, who built on goals from Patrick Slattery, Jamie Insall and Kyle Wilkie.

Fellow promotion hopefuls Clyde also took three points from their home clash with Elgin City, where they still managed to score in abundance despite a sending off as they rose victorious with a 4-2 win at Broadwood Stadium.

Stirling produced an important win further down the league too, where they had second-half goals from Willie Robertson, Ross Smith and Steven Doris to thank as the home side were able to beat Arbroath 3-1.

Results in full: Annan 1-0 Berwick, Clyde 4-2 Elgin City, East Fife 5-3 East Stirling, Stirling 3-1 Arbroath
