Strugglers shock Forfar

Stenhousemuir bounced back from three successive defeats to beat promotion-chasing Forfar 2-0.

Two goals in three second-half minutes were enough for the home side to move four points above the relegation play-off place.

Dale Hilson came closest to opening the scoring in the first half but the Forfar striker saw his effort come back off a post.

The woodwork denied the visitors again in the second period as Christopher Templeman's header narrowly missed giving Forfar a lead.

But in the 65th minute Sean Dickson headed in the opener from Greg Ross' right-wing cross.

Two minutes later Darren Smith fired into the top corner from the edge of the area to secure the three points for Stenhousemuir.

Forfar remain in the final play-off spot, ahead of Arbroath on goal difference.
