Sport | Stirling Albion win under the lights | Report

Stirling Albion beat Berwick Rangers, 3-1, under a cold and blustery Tuesday night under the light.

Going into the game Albion were hoping to maintain their form that has seen them get into a playoff position, and going into the game they were confident of getting a result as Berwick Rangers who were in the bottom 3 going into the game.

Stirling got off to a great start grabbing a goal after only 9 minutes after a terrible mix up between the Berwick keeper and defender meaning that Jordan White was able to tap in from 2 yards out making it 5 goals in 5 games for the big man.

Despite Stirling dominating the majority of the play, Berwick equalized just after half time from a 20 yard shot from Lee Currie. However Stirling were quickly back in front after more bad defending from Berwick led to a Steven Notman own goal.

Soon after that a cracking volley from Ross Forsyth made it 3-1 to Stirling effectively finishing off the game. Meaning that Stirling moved up to second in the league only 2 points behind the league leaders Clyde.

The thing that stood out most in the game was the pace and energy of Stirling players, especially number 7 Phil Johnston and number 10 Graham Weir, which Berwick simply could not handle. Stirling also played much better football than Berwick as they were able to get the ball on the ground and play some nice football in comparison to the Route 1 long ball play of Berwick.

Stirling defiantly deserved the win and outclassed the opposition for a lot of game and are now in a great position as they push for promotion this year.
