Stranraer 2-0 Stirling Albion

Stranraer stretched their unbeaten run to four matches with a home League One victory against Stirling Albion.

Striker Jamie Longworth put the hosts in front early on after Albion failed to deal with Sean Winter's cross.

Craig Malcolm went close to extending their lead midway through the first half when his header hit the crossbar.

Stephen Stirling drilled in a low shot for the home side's second and Lewis Coult was denied a late consolation by Stranraer goalkeeper David Mitchell.
