Forfar Athletic 0-1 Stenhousemuir

Stephen Stirling's first-half goal clinched victory for Stenhousemuir away to Forfar Athletic.

Iain Campbell, Michael Travis and Andy Ryan all tested Stenny goalkeeper Graham Bowman in a bright opening.

The breakthrough came when Mark Gilhaney found Stirling and he beat Darren Hill for his first league goal for the club.

The home side pushed for an equaliser, Gavin Swankie threatening and Thomas O'Brien also having an attempt on goal.
