Edinburgh promoted to League One for first time after surviving Annan fightback

Innes Murray struck a stunning winner as 爱丁堡 clinched promotion to cinch 联赛一 for the first time after surviving a fightback to complete a 3-2 aggregate win over Annan.

Leading the play-off 2-0 following Tuesday’s first leg, the Citizens saw their advantage wiped outside inside 20 minutes at Galabank following Tony Wallace’s early penalty and a Tommy Goss header.

But Alan Maybury’s side were not to be denied as Hibernian loanee Murray – who opened the scoring in the first meeting – delightfully curled home from distance to claim the decisive goal eight minutes into the second period.

Annan finished seven points above their opponents in the regular 联赛二 季节.

Striker Rob McCartney hit the side-netting in the closing stages as the hosts searched for a way back into the tie, while Edinburgh goalkeeper Brian Schwake made a string of fine saves to deny them.
