Stenhousemuir 2-2 Arbroath

Arbroath remain seven points adrift at the bottom of Scottish League One after drawing at Stenhousemuir.

The visitors took the lead when Paul McManus curled home but Ben Greenhalgh's smart finish levelled matters.

Robert Lynn tucked away an Alan Cook pass to give Arbroath the advantage a second time.

However, Stenny came back again. Sean Higgins nodded into the net to secure a point for the hosts, one which takes them closer to the play-off zone.
