Stranraer 3-1 Airdrieonians

Stranraer move up to third in Scottish League One with a comfortable win over bottom club Airdrie at Stair Park.

Martin Grehan opened early with a simple header after visting keeper Scott Gallagher fumbled a save.

The Blues doubled just before the break, Sean Winter scoring from Andrew Stirling's initial blocked shot.

Airdire's Martin Hardie replied after the restart from inside the area but Gallagher palmed Stirling's shot into his own net for the host's third.
