Brechin City confirmed their survival in League One with a win over promotion-chasing Stranraer.

Alan Trouten coolly slotted a penalty into the bottom left corner to put them in front after just five minutes.

The lead lasted only 15 minutes as Andrew Stirling's cross from the left looped into the far corner beyond Graeme Smith.

But Robert Thompson finished from inside the area to give the Hedgemen an important win.
