Stranraer 0-2 Stenhousemuir

Stenhousemuir moved out of the Scottish League One relegation zone with a surprise win over leaders Stranraer.

The Warriors went ahead when Tom Walsh beat goalkeeper David Mitchell with a low, left-foot shot from the right-hand side of the penalty area.

Colin McMenamin doubled the visitors' advantage, latching on to Walsh's through ball and finishing.

Adam Forde and Daniel Stoney threatened late on for Stranraer, who remain level on points with Forfar Athletic.
