Forfar Athletic 1-0 Stenhousemuir

Danny Denholm's strike defeated Stenhousemuir and moved Forfar Athletic up to second in Scottish League One.

Michael Travis could have given Forfar the lead in the first half, his header too close to goalkeeper Greg Fleming.

Denholm, who had replaced Dale Hilson early in the match, nodded wide just after the interval.

But he did find the net with a sweeping shot from Gavin Swankie's pass and Martin Grehan passed up a late chance for Stenny.
