Arbroath 2-2 Montrose

Paul McManus missed a late penalty for Arbroath after they squandered a two-goal lead against Montrose.

McManus had the chance to win it after Jonathan Crawford had fouled Dylan Easton but he blazed his spot-kick over the bar.

Goals in either half from Adam Hunter and Simon Murray had Arbroath well in control.

But an own goal from Scott McBride and Stephen Day's close-range finish secured a point for Montrose.
