Match Report


Arbroath overcame Stirling Albion to remain joint-top of Division Two.

David McPherson's own goal gave the hosts the lead but Alan Cook nodded Stirling level before the break.

Sean Dillon headed the visitors ahead but Steven Doris's penalty, awarded after Gary Thom's foul on Josh Falkingham, levelled matters.

Thom had been sent off for conceding the spot-kick and the 10 men fell behind to strikes by Paul Sheerin and Gavin Swankie.
