Aitken at the double

Stranraer put further daylight between themselves and bottom side Albion with a 3-2 victory at the Cliftonhill Stadium.

A brace from Christopher Aitken and a Ryan Borris goal were enough to secure the points.

Aitken smashed the visitors into an early lead with his effort from the edge of the box proving too good for Matthew McGinley in the Albion goal.

David Crawford attempted an immediate response for the hosts but his effort from distance cleared the bar.

The lead was doubled inside 20 minutes when Michael Moore teed up Borris, who sent the ball high into the roof of the net.

Steven Howarth pulled one back for Albion after the break before Aitken restored his team's two-goal advantage from the penalty spot with four minutes remaining

Moments later Anthony Stevenson fired in a free-kick for Albion but the visitors held on.
