Forfar Athletic 3-0 Stenhousemuir

Forfar swept 10-man Stenhousemuir aside in style to go top of League One.

Dale Hilson grabbed the opener with a neat finish after being set up by Gavin Swankie.

Swankie reacted quickest to net the second after the break before Stenny's Cieran Summers was sent off for a second booking.

Substitute Martyn Fotheringham made sure of the win when he curled a delightful free-kick into the top corner.

The Loons are now one point clear of Dunfermline at the top of the table.
