Forfar Athletic 2-1 Stirling Albion

Substitute Martyn Fotheringham's goal against Stirling Albion kept Forfar Athletic two points clear at the top of Scottish League One.

Steven Doris levelled from Alex Cunningham's pass just before half-time.

But Fotheringham headed the winner from Mark Baxter's cross, just seven minutes after coming off the bench.
