Five-goal David Goodwillie continued his stunning scoring run as Clyde thrashed 10-man Stranraer 6-1 at Broadwood Stadium.
The 30-year-old striker netted a first-half hat-trick, converting two penalties, before adding two more after the break – including a third from the spot – to take his tally to 10 goals in eight games.
He broke the deadlock on the half-hour mark after Adam Cummins saw red for upending Ally Love and repeated the trick three minutes later when Ryan Thomson fouled Ray Grant.
Goodwillie claimed the match ball two minutes before the break with a stunning strike from just outside the box.
He then scored a third from the penalty spot 10 minutes into the second half – at the second attempt after missing his initial kick – having been brought down by keeper Max Currie.
James Hilton (66) grabbed a consolation for Stranraer but Darren Smith (81) made it 5-1 before Goodwillie completed the rout with his fifth in the 86th minute.
East Fife maintained top spot following a 3-1 win at bottom-of-the-table Montrose.
Aaron Dunsmore opened the scoring four minutes before the break but Blair Lyons levelled in the 53rd minute.
A minute later, Montrose had Terry Masson sent off for a foul on Dunsmore, who capped an eventful match by grabbing his side’s second in the 68th minute before Ryan Wallace (84) added a third.
Raith remain in second after a convincing 4-0 home victory over Peterhead.
Grant Anderson put Rovers ahead in the seventh minute before Regan Hendry missed an open goal from six yards as he headed into the ground and over the bar in the 27th minute.
But moments later Michael Miller did double Raith’s advantage with a left-footed finish from the edge of the box.
Lewis Vaughan, on his full debut, chipped in a third seven minutes into the second half and Miller notched his second in the 67th minute.
Louis Longridge bagged a brace after Michael Doyle’s opener as Falkirk posted a 3-0 home win over Forfar while Paul McKay struck the only goal as Airdrieonians won 1-0 at Dumbarton.
