Stenhousemuir 1-0 Stranraer

Allan Smith's solitary strike proved enough for Stenhousemuir to claim maximum points against Stranraer in Scottish League One.

Smith and Stranraer's Dale Keenan missed first-half chances.

The hosts finally made the breakthrough midway through the second half when Smith was set up by Alan Cook to fire into the bottom corner.

Goalkeeper Jamie Barclay denied Paul Cairney and Keenan to keep the hosts in front.
