Peterhead 0-3 Stenhousemuir

Scottish Football League

Stenhousemuir avoided the relegation play-offs with a win over Peterhead.

Stephen Murray's glorious long ball in the 41st minute found Stenny's Grant Anderson racing clear and the forward tucked it away for the opener.

Callum MacDonald's foul on Stenny's Scott Dalziel on the edge of the box allowed Eric Paton to fire a free-kick beyond John Bateman in the 68th minute.

And with 75 minutes on the clock Dalziel headed Paul Quinn's cross in to the net to make it three.
