But they bounced back at Gala as goals in each half sealed a win which pushed them back up to second in the table.

Dean Brotherston bundled home the opening goal for the visitors in the 24th minute after Dylan Cairnie flicked on a Lewis Sloan League top scorer Russell Currie then added the second – his eighth goal of the season – on the hour, capitalising on a defensive mistake to beat two defenders before shooting low past keeper Mason McCready.

Next up for Star this Saturday is a trip to the Penny Cars Stadium in Airdrie to face Celtic B.
