Stranraer 1-2 Dunfermline Athletic

A second-half strike from Michael Moffat sealed victory for Dunfermline in a bad tempered win over Stranraer.

The visitors opened early via a Gozie Ugwu free-kick but then had Ross Millen sent off for serious foul play.

William Gibson made things worse when he converted the subsequent free-kick to level the scores.

Stranraer lost Craig Malcolm after two bookable offences and Dunfermline grabbed the winning goal on 63 minutes when Moffat slammed home from 10 yards.
