Albion Rovers 3-2 Forfar Athletic

Forfar Athletic's relegation to Scottish League Two was confirmed with defeat at Albion Rovers.

Danny Denholm scored after going one-on-one with Rovers keeper Ross Stewart inside the first minute but Ally Love quickly equalised from close range.

Scott McBride headed the hosts in front before the break.

The visitors levelled through Andy Ryan's penalty on the hour after Kyle Turnbull had fouled Denholm only for Michael Dunlop to head home for Albion.
