Queen's Park 2-1 Arbroath

Ryan McGeever's late goal boosted Queen's Park play-off hopes as they snatched victory over lowly Arbroath in Scottish League Two.

The Spiders went ahead when Chris Duggan cut back for Paul Woods to emphatically find the top corner in the first half.

Kane Hester nodded Arbroath level early in the second period.

But Ryan McGeever headed the hosts in front again and kept them just inside the promotion play-off zone.
