Brechin City 2-0 Stranraer

Brechin City leapfrogged Stranraer at the foot of League One after victory at Glebe Park.

The hosts who took the lead when Dene Shields jumped on a loose ball, turned and rifled a shot in.

It was 2-0 as poor defending allowed Isaac Layne to latch on to the ball and drill home.

Layne then saw his penalty saved, while Stranraer's Kyle Turner had a right-footed effort come back of the post.
