Berwick Rangers 3-1 Arbroath

Leaders Arbroath remain without a Scottish League Two win in 2015 after they lost to Berwick Rangers.

Arbroath took the lead against the run of play when Thomas Grant slid his effort under goalkeeper William Bald midway through the second half.

Lee Currie's deflected long-range strike soon levelled and Paul Willis, who went close twice in the first half, put Berwick ahead for the first time.

Andrew Russell rounded goalkeeper Marc McCallum for the hosts' third.
