Brechin City 1-0 Stranraer

Stranraer missed the chance to seal the last remaining promotion play-off place after losing to Brechin City in Scottish League One.

Brechin had the better of a quiet first half, but Cameron Belford brilliantly denied Andrew Jackson.

The visitors had a double chance before half-time, Steven Bell unable to steer a corner on target and Scott Robertson having an effort blocked.

Robert Thomson went close before setting up Jamie Robson's late winner.
