Stranraer 2-3 Queen's Park

Scottish Football League

Ian Watt's last-gasp strike gave Queen's Park a thrilling Third Division win at Stranraer.

The visitors took the lead when Jamie Longworth headed home Martin McBride's corner after 10 minutes.

Stranraer responded well as Craig Malcolm broke down the left before squaring to Martin Grehan for a simple finish.

Roles were reversed five minutes later, with Grehan setting up Malcolm from the right for the striker to rifle into the roof of the net to put the home side ahead.

Substitute Craig Smith grabbed the equaliser for Queen's Park after 72 minutes, with a diving header that diverted Paul Stewart's wayward shot into the net.

Two minutes from time, Watt found himself perfectly positioned to slot home David Murray's cross to secure the victory for the Spiders.
