Stranraer 1-1 Arbroath

Arbroath slipped to bottom place in Scottish League One after being pegged back at Stranraer.

A left-foot strike by Paul McManus put the visitors in front just before the quarter-hour mark.

Stranraer responded by piling on the pressure but were frustrated as the game became scrappy with few clear-cut chances.

However, a long shot from Grant Gallagher found the bottom corner of the goal to level matters late on.
