Malcolm points way for Stranraer

Craig Malcolm's hat-trick saw Stranraer come from behind to beat Albion 3-2 and move out of the bottom two.

David Crawford put the visitors in front after six minutes when he fired in from 12 yards to score his ninth goal of the campaign.

Albion forward Patrick Walker doubled his side's lead in the 27th minute when he headed the ball high into the corner of the net from close range.

Malcolm gave the Blues hope five minutes before the break when he tapped in from six yards out to score his 10th goal of the season.

He then pulled Stranraer level 11 minutes after the restart when he headed home from 12 yards out.

Things went from bad to worse for the visitors when Kevin Green saw red for a second bookable offence in the 70th minute before Malcolm added a third from 18 yards four minutes later.
