Stranraer 1-0 Stenhousemuir

A Chris Aitken penalty was enough to separate the sides as Stranraer defeated second-placed Stenhousemuir.

Stranraer started brightly and visiting keeper Chris Smith had to look smart to keep out Jamie Longworth's effort

Sean Higgins went close for Stenhousemuir, but the game changed immediately afterward when Ross Smith brought down Martin Grehan in the box.

Aitken made no mistake from the spot, firing the ball into the top-right corner of the goal.
