East Fife 1-1 Stranraer

Scott Robertson's first goal of the season helped Stranraer claim a draw against Scottish League One strugglers East Fife.

The home side had led for much of the game and looked the better team before Robertson headed the ball into the roof of the net late in the match.

Nathan Austin had earlier nodded the Fifers into the lead.

But they almost found themselves behind in the dying moments, David McKenna firing wide for the visitors.
