Arbroath 1-1 Annan Athletic

Simon Murray secured a draw for Arbroath as Annan Athletic were denied a Scottish League Two win at Gayfield.

Third-place Arbroath - without a win in 15 games - struggled early on and fell behind early in the second half.

Annan, who earlier hit the post through Stuart McColm got ahead when Kenneth Mackay poked the ball under the onrushing Marc McCallum.

But Murray found space in the box to level for the home side - his first goal since December.
