Stranraer 3-2 Arbroath

Martin Grehan scored twice as Stranraer overcame Arbroath in Scottish League One.

And Grehan's swept in Grant Gallagher's cross to extend Stranraer's advantage after the break.

However, Arbroath came back into the match and Lee Erwin netted before Alan Cook converted a late penalty following Scott Robertson's foul.
