Forfar Athletic 3-1 Peterhead

Gavin Swankie scored twice and set up the other as Forfar Athletic defeated 10-man Peterhead to move up to second in Scottish League One.

Forfar moved into the lead when Swankie set up Chris Templeman to net from close range.

Peterhead's Rory McAllister was sent off for a second bookable offence before the break and Swankie fired his first goal in the second half.

Cammy Kerr pulled one back before Swankie claimed Forfar's third.
