Stranraer stepped up their Scottish League Two promotion bid with a comprehensive 4-0 home win against play-off rivals Stenhousemuir.
Stevie Farrell’s side scored three goals inside four first-half minutes through James Hilton, Thomas Orr and Ruari Paton to take complete control.
Paton’s shot from outside the penalty area early in the second period hit a post, but the Irish striker doubled his tally in the 73rd minute, while Stranraer created plenty of other chances.
The Blues leapfrogged Elgin into fourth place, the last play-off spot, while Stenhousemuir stayed sixth but slipped six points off the pace in the race for a top-four finish.
