Stranraer 5-1 Dunfermline Athletic

League One leaders Stranraer took full advantage of Gregor Buchanan's red card to hammer Dunfermline.

Grant Gallagher fired the Blues in front before Andy Geggan levelled and Buchanan saw red for stamping on Jamie Longworth after 31 minutes.

The hosts made the Pars pay with Chris Aitken and William Gibson scoring before half time.

Longworth added his name to the scoresheet after the break before Jon McShane tapped in the fifth.
