Arbroath 1-1 East Fife

Arbroath and East Fife shared the spoils in a Scottish League Two draw at Gayfield.

The visitors dominated the first half, Pat Slattery's strike troubling goalkeeper Allan Fleming before Scott Mercer set up Jonathan Page to score.

Andy Munro's effort against a post gave Arbroath hope.

Martin Grehan was at the centre of their resurgence, firing over from his own half and then diverting a corner for Craig Watson to head in.

Fleming denied Nathan Austin and opposite number Ryan Goodfellow saved from Andy Ryan and Jamie Clarke as time expired.
