Edinburgh City got the better of Stenhousemuir

Despite trailing to Mark McGuigan’s sixth-minute opener, James McDonaugh’s fought back strongly against the Warriors on Saturday afternoon.

Blair Henderson moved a step closer to 100 career goals – he is now on 96 – with his equaliser on 56 minutes after good work from Alex Harris.

City went ahead on 69 minutes when midfielder Marc Laird was on hand to convert a cross from Scott Shepherd.

Stenhousemuir pushed for a leveller of their own, but City made sure of the three points when Shepherd himself got in on the act.
