Stranraer remain two points behind Scottish League One leaders Forfar Athletic after a convincing win over Peterhead.

A brilliant early goal by James Stevenson gave the hosts the lead but Frank McKeown's header levelled matters.

Grant Gallagher's close-range finish put Stranraer ahead for the first time and Craig Malcolm headed their third.

And Christopher Aitken added a fourth with a left-foot shot.
