Scottish League Two bottom side East Stirlingshire survived a second-half onslaught to draw at Arbroath.

The hosts' Andy Munro was unfortunate to see an early close-range header clear the bar before efforts by Kane Hester and Jordan Lowdon sailed wide

At the other end, Richard Little blocked a Neil McCabe attempt.

Arbroath's Jamie Reid shot wide in the second half, Mark Whatley was then denied and Shire had to sustain further pressure to claim a point.
