Late goal seals all three points for Rovers in Stranraer

Courtesy of substitute Scott McBride’s second half goal, Rovers came away with all three points this afternoon in a tight game in Dumfries and Galloway.

McBride, who came onto the pitch with twenty minutes remaining, scored the crucial goal at 79 minutes, latching onto a Paul Willis pass before firing his strike away from Stranraer goalkeeper, David McGurn.

The morale-boosting victory sees Darren Young’s side rise to 5th place in the league, just two points adrift of fourth place Airdrieonians.
