A round-up of yesterday’s action from the second division
Stenhousemuir 3 - 0 East Fife

However, Paul Currie’s 75th minute strike restored Arbroath’s lead before Derek Holmes headed home a late third.
Ayr 2 - 1 Albion Rovers
Michael Moffat opened the scoring for Ayr from the penalty spot in the second minute but the visitors’ Steven Howarth levelled.
In the dying seconds Barry Russell was sent off for a professional foul on Moffat who stepped up to slam home the resulting spot-kick.
Forfar Athletic 2 - 3 Alloa Athletic
Ryan McCord’s penalty put Alloa ahead in the seventh minute before Danny Denholm’s equaliser for second-placed Forfar moments later.
Denholm levelled again after Jason Marr had scored Alloa’s second but Ben Gordon pounced to net Alloa’s winner in the 83rd minute.
