Stranraer 0-3 Forfar Athletic

Forfar Athletic kept the pressure on Arbroath in the race for the final play-off spot in the Second Division with a convincing away win over Stranraer.

Inside the first two minutes, Forfar showed their intent with Ross Campbell's ambitious 35-yard shot sailing over the bar.

In the ninth minute, they got their reward when Stranraer's Michael Dunlop put through his own net from Danny Denholm's dangerous cross.

Forfar doubled their lead in the 28th minute with Chris Templeman's precision finish finding the bottom left corner of the goal after a cross by Iain Campbell.

The visitors made it 3-0 in the second-half when Omar Kader neatly slotted home from six yards.

Forfar, who host Ayr United on the final weekend, are one point behind Arbroath, with second-top Alloa Athletic the Red Lichties' visitors.

Stenhousemuir, three points behind Arbroath but with a superior goal difference, are also at home to Stranraer.

Stranraer are two points ahead of East Fife, who are at home to Brechin City, as they try to avoid a relegation play-off.
