Stranraer 0-2 Brechin City

Scottish League One leaders Stranraer were beaten as Craig Wighton netted twice for Brechin City at Stair Park.

The on-loan Dundee player forced a save from David Mitchell early on and opened the scoring just before the break with a right-foot shot.

Colin Hamilton's header for Stranraer went wide in the second half.

Wighton nodded in Robert Barr's floated corner to seal Brechin's win, with the Glebe Park side extending their unbeaten run to 13 games.
