East Stirlingshire v Gretna FC 2008 27/10/18 – Reporter: Ewan Malcolm

East Stirlingshire made it back-to-back Lowland League victories with a 2-0 success against Gretna 2008 on Saturday.

Second half strikes from Paul McCafferty and David McCaughie handed the Shire a valuable three points.

The victory sees Shire move into ninth place in the table, nine points behind early pace-setters Kelty Hearts, now managed by Barry Ferguson.

It was a quiet start to proceedings at the Falkirk Stadium on Saturday, with Gretna firing the first effort high and wide inside ten minutes.

The crowd of 160 inside the cold stadium had little keeping them warm, but McCafferty had a shot blocked on 23 minutes before a miscontrol denied Andy Rodgers a chance ten minutes before the interval.

Those two linked up before the break, with Rodgers flashing an overhead kick wide.

Into the second period, and the Shire took control.

McCafferty gave Derek Ure’s side the lead on 58 minutes, and the three points were secured in the 91st minute by McCaughie.
