Stenhousemuir 3-1 East Fife (4-2)

A stunning impact from substitute Craig Sutherland saw Stenhousemuir into the League One play-off final as they edged past East Fife in extra time.

Following a 1-1 draw in the first leg, Kieran Millar shot the hosts ahead from close range early on.

An 87th-minute header from Jonathan Page sent the tie to extra time.

But Jamie McCormack struck on 94 minutes and Sutherland settled the tie with a shot from near the penalty spot shortly after coming on.

Stenhousemuir will now take on Queen's Park over two legs.
