Stranraer 3-2 Alloa Athletic

Stranraer moved off the bottom of the Second Division with a shock victory over second-placed Alloa Athletic.

The visitors were unbeaten in seven league games coming into the game but fell behind to Michael Dunlop's 44th-minute header from Christopher Aitken's corner.

Craig Malcolm made it two with a low drive into the bottom corner 11 minutes into the second half.

The Wasps hit back just after the hour mark as Nicky Low's corner was header in by Graeme Holmes.

However, the Stair Park side restored their two-goal lead with 11 minutes left when Malcolm squared for Robert Love to turn in from close range.

It took just two minutes for the visitors to pull one back as Robert Thomson hit a low drive into the bottom corner from the right side of the area but Stranraer held on to move above Albion Rovers in the table.
