Stenhousemuir 2-2 Stranraer

A last-minute equaliser from Colin McMenamin rescued a point for Stenhousemuir as they came from behind twice to draw with Stranraer.

The visitors took the lead midway through the first half when prolific marksman Jamie Longworth fired home from inside the six-yard box for his fourth goal in as many games.

They were pegged back by the Warriors in the second half, when substitute McMenamin capitalised on a poor backpass for his first league goal of the season.

Stranraer thought they had nabbed the victory in the 76th minute through midfielder Sean Winter, who converted coolly from inside the penalty area after receiving a pass from Craig Malcolm.

But the hosts pressed for an equaliser and it arrived deep into stoppage time when McMenamin lashed in from close range.
