East Fife 1-2 Stranraer

Steven Bell's injury-time winner ensured Stranraer came away with all three points against East Fife.

The visitors took the lead in the opening minute when Jamie Longworth slotted home Grant Gallagher's pass.

Liam Buchanan's strike equalised for the Fifers before the break.

Stranraer won a penalty when Greg Paterson fouled Martin Grehan and, though Paterson saved Bell's initial spot-kick, the substitute scored on the rebound to clinch victory.
