Albion Rovers 2-1 Arbroath

A late goal from Albion Rovers' John Gemmell confirmed consecutive losses for Scottish League Two leaders Arbroath.

Marc McKenzie gave third-top Rovers an early lead when he slotted in from Mark McGuigan's cross.

Scott McBride drew the visitors level with a curling free-kick into the top corner.

Kieran Stewart and Paul McManus were wasteful in front of goal and were made to pay when Gemmell headed the winner.
