Stranraer claim shock win

Stranraer are off the bottom of the table after a shock 3-2 victory over second-placed Alloa.

The visitors were unbeaten in seven league games coming into the game but fell behind to Michael Dunlop's 44th-minute header from Christopher Aitken's corner.

Craig Malcolm made it two with a low drive into the bottom corner 11 minutes into the second half.

Alloa hit back just after the hour mark as Nicky Low's corner was header in by Graeme Holmes.

But Stranraer restored their two-goal lead with 11 minutes left when Malcolm squared for Robert Love to turn in from close range.

It took just two minutes for the visitors to pull one back as Robert Thomson hit a low drive into the bottom corner from the right side of the area.

But Stranraer held on to move above Albion in the table.
