Stranraer 2-0 Greenock Morton

Two goals from Craig Malcolm gave Stranraer victory over Greenock Morton in Scottish League One.

The Blues striker first pounced after half-an-hour, diving to head in after Grant Gallagher's free-kick had come crashing back off the crossbar.

And the 27-year-old netted again two minutes into the second half, tapping in from Jamie Longworth's cross.

The visitors ended the game with nine men after Sean Crighton and Conor Pepper picked up two bookings each.
