Stenhousemuir 1-3 Forfar Athletic

Martyn Fotheringham's brace helped Forfar Athletic come from behind to beat 10-man Stenhousemuir and move up to second in Scottish League One.

Stenny took the lead when Colin McMenamin fired home from inside the six-yard box just after half-time.

However, Anthony Marenghi was sent off for a second booking and Forfar took advantage when Fotheringham struck low past Greg Fleming.

Fotheringham converted Gavin Swankie's pass before the latter also netted.
