Arbroath 1-1 Queen's Park

Queen's Park will have to settle for second place in League Two after they dropped points at Arbroath and allowed Albion Rovers to win the title.

The Spiders had to win to keep their faint hopes alive but fell behind when Simon Murray tucked in a cross from Kieran McWalter.

Robert Linn threatened a second, his free-kick kept out by Willie Muir.

Sean Burns struck to level matters in stoppage time but there was to be no winner.

And Rovers built up an unassailable lead and automatic promotion by beating Clyde 3-2.
