Arbroath 2-2 Stranraer

Scottish Football League

Third Division leaders Arbroath failed to move further ahead at the top of the league after a draw with Stranraer.

The game erupted into life in the second half after an uneventful opening period.

Declan Gallagher's own goal put the Red Lichties in front before Scott Agnew's free-kick levelled the scores.

Home goalkeeper Darren Hill then saw red before Armand One put the visitors ahead, but Gavin Swankie's late strike saved a point for Paul Sheerin's side.
