Stirling Albion 0-1 Arbroath

Scottish Football League

Stuart Malcolm's last-gasp header kept Arbroath hot on the heels of league leaders Cowdenbeath with a win at Stirling.

The hosts started strongly but Arbroath's Steven Doris had the first real chance to open the scoring, dragging his strike wide from six yards.

In a frantic first half-hour, Stirling's Darren Smith and Scott Davieson both tried their luck from long range, the latter having his effort well saved by Darren Hill.

Josh Falkingham had a similar chance to Doris' in the second half, with a similar result as he missed the target with a scuffed shot.

Arbroath then pushed forward to grab the three points and with a minute remaining they got their reward when Doris' cross found Malcolm, who stooped low to nod past Callum Reidford.
