Arbroath 1-2 Queen's Park

Queen's Park extended their unbeaten run to seven matches to close the gap on league leaders Arbroath.

The visitors were ahead inside two minutes when Shaun Rooney found Shaun Fraser in space inside the box and he slotted past goalkeeper Scott Morrison.

Kevin Fotheringham doubled the Spiders' lead 11 minutes from time, rifling his effort into the top corner.

Arbroath replied less than two minutes later through Paul McManus, who headed home Jack Smith's cross.
