Peterhead 3-2 Forfar Athletic

Gary McDonald scored a late winner as Peterhead got the better of Forfar Athletic in Scottish League One.

It was Forfar who took the lead, Gavin Swankie rifling past Graeme Smith.

However, the hosts scored twice in quick succession before half-time. James Redman struck before Andrew Rodgers headed home.

Forfar's Stuart Malcolm was dismissed for fighting but they levelled through Danny Denholm only for McDonald to net from close range.
