Stranraer 0-3 Dunfermline Athletic

Dunfermline moved top of Scottish League One by easing to victory over Stranraer at Stair Park.

Michael Moffat's low finish from inside the area gave the Pars the lead early in the match.

And Ben Richards-Everton headed his first senior goal to double the visitors' advantage before the break.

After the break, Joe Cardle's replacement Mickael Antoine-Curier nodded in Dunfermline's third goal and their 33rd in the league this season.
