Stranraer 3-2 Stenhousemuir

Stranraer moved to the top of Scottish League One after beating Stenhousemuir.

William Gibson fired the hosts ahead and Sean Winter netted their second before half-time.

Craig Pettigrew's strike further extended Stranraer's lead after the interval but Martin Grehan pulled one back for Stenny from close range.

Cieran Summers' left-footed effort set up a nervous finale for the home side but they held on to replace Forfar Athletic at the summit.

Forfar lost 1-0 at Peterhead.
