Arbroath 2-2 East Fife

Lee Erwin scored a late penalty as Arbroath earned a draw in a thriller against nine-man East Fife.

Alan Cook's brilliant curling effort put Arbroath after the break.

Liam Buchanan levelled in the 70th minute with a left-footed drive and the striker headed in his second five minutes later.

Scott McBride was sent off for hauling Robert Linn down and Erwin stroked home the spot-kick before Gary Thom was also shown a red card.

Despite that dismissal for a second bookable offence, Arbroath could not take advantage.
