Scottish Cup: Cowdenbeath 1-1 Arbroath

Craig Johnston's second-half goal for Cowdenbeath forced a Scottish Cup third-round replay against Arbroath.

League Two Arbroath, who had a number of first-half chances, took the lead early in the second period with Mark Whatley firing low past Jamie Sneddon.

But League One Cowdenbeath were back on terms when Johnston headed home Brad Donaldson's free-kick.

The hosts came close to taking the lead when Kyle Miller hit the frame of the goal.
