Arbroath 1-1 Stirling Albion

Darren Smith scored with 14 minutes remaining to give Stirling Albion a draw with Arbroath in their League Two mid-table clash.

Kane Hester had put his side ahead with a 70th-minute strike from a Greg Rutherford pass.

But the home side could not hold on to the lead and Smith arrived in the box to finish off Steven Doris' centre.

Jamie Reid went close to winning it for Arbroath but was denied by Chris Smith, with a draw a fair outcome.
