Stranraer 1-0 Airdrieonians

A stunning late strike from midfielder Willie Gibson earned Scottish League One leaders Stranraer a deserved win over Airdrieonians.

The home side came close to taking the lead when Sean Winter's header was well-held by goalkeeper Andy McNeil.

Stranraer continued to dominate and Steven Bell should have done better with a close-range header.

The Blues snatched the winner when Gibson let fly from long range to keep the Stair Park top of the table.
