Arbroath 1-2 Stranraer

Stranraer moved to within two points of second-place Dunfermline with victory over Arbroath in Scottish League One.

Jamie Longworth headed home Sean Winter's cross to give the visitors the lead.

But Ross Chisholm found Steven Doris early in the second half and the on-loan Dundee forward nodded Arbroath level.

Christopher Aitken's free-kick flew into the net to put Stranraer ahead again.
