A first ever senior hat trick from Lewis Coult saw us rack up our sixth successive league win over bottom of the table Albion.
There were three changes to the side which had lost at Forfar in our previous game. Colin Cameron was sided by injury and was replaced by on loan Gary Fisher for his debut.
Kenny Adamson returned after serving a suspension against the Loons, with Derek Lyle also back in the starting line up. Both Scott Linton and Liam Cusack dropped down to the bench.
It took Coult just ten minutes to open the scoring. His initial shot was blocked by keeper Reidford but he made no mistake with effort despite the efforts of Jacobs who turned the ball onto the post before it crossed the line in a vain effort to clear.
The home fans waited for the avalanche but it did not come and gradually Stirling started to create openings.
Home keeper Flynn did well to gather a Thom cross which deflected awkwardly off Armstrong, then Weir fired wide from a good position.
In 34 minutes the game was level. Cook's corner was headed across the face of the Cowden goal by Mark Ferry and no one picked up Gary Thom who shot home from only five yards.
Shortly after Ferry's 25 yard shot was held by Flynn and then the keeper took two efforts to deal with Jacobs effort.
The Blues came out for the second-half and from the whistle were much more convincing.
In 48 minutes they re-took the lead when McKenzie's corner was headed across the Albion penalty area by Armstrong and Lewis Coult rose to head home.
Eleven minutes later it was 3-1. Dillon delayed his pass and Lewis Coult robbed him and ran through to shoot wide of Reidford to complete his treble.
Two minutes later McKenzie got free in the box but Reidford made a good save and then Ramsay's pass sent Coult clear but this time the goalkeeper blocked his shot.
Albion were chasing shadows now and the surprise was that it took until the 84th minute for number four to arrive. Fisher's pass was perfect for Marc McKENZIE and he raced in to shoot home to complete a fine second-half performance.
As the clock wound down a miserable day for the Albion was completed with seconds remaining when Flood was red carded for a foul on Adamson, joining team mates McCulloch and Dillon in referee Northcroft’s book following earlier bookings.
