Craig Pettigrew's second-half strike earned Stranraer a deserved win at home to Forfar in League One.

Willie Gibson and Ryan Thomson went close for the hosts early on, while at the other end Cameron Belford denied Andy Ryan just before half-time.

Forfar goalkeeper Darren Hill tipped a Pettigrew drive over, but from the resulting corner the full-back converted Gibson's delivery.

Ryan had a free-kick saved as the visitors pushed in vain for a leveller.
