Albion Rovers 0-1 Stranraer

Stranraer recorded a slim victory over Albion at Cliftonhill to add further momentum to their play-off push.

Mark McGuigan sprinted clear of the home defence and slid the ball to fellow striker Jamie Longworth who tapped the ball into the net.

Rovers forward Gary Fisher - who had only just returned from suspension - was sent off for using foul and abusive language.

Stranraer survived late pressure when Alistair Love's header hit the bar.
