Stranraer 2-0 Peterhead

Stranraer moved four points clear at the top of Scottish League One courtesy of a home victory over Peterhead.

William Gibson went close for the hosts before Jamie Longworth broke the deadlock, heading in from close range.

Scott Ross almost drew Peterhead level with a fierce right-footed shot that was narrowly off target.

Jon McShane doubled Stranraer's lead immediately after the break, tapping in after Grant Gallagher's initial shot had been saved.
