STRIKER Stuart Noble grabbed a last minute winner for Gala Fairydean Rovers to sink bottom side Preston Athletic.

The former St Johnstone player had scored a first half brace with Des Sutherland also netting as Gala raced into a 3-0 lead.

Robbie Carter, Jason Young and Reese Cochrane goals brought it back to 3-3 in the second half.

But Noble's injury time winner stole the points.

His brother and manager Steven said: "It was a dramatic game and it looked as though we'd thrown away two points but Stuart took full advantage of their mistake to win it for us.

“The points should be enough for us to be safe in mid table of the Lowland League.”
