Stenhousemuir 0-2 Forfar Athletic

Forfar Athletic maintained their fine run of league form with a solid away win at Ochilview Park.

Jamie Reid and Colin McMenamin were denied by keeper Rab Douglas as the hosts pushed for an equaliser.

Forfar doubled their lead on 71 minutes when Stephen Husband whipped in a free-kick which found the bottom corner.
