Love hurts Arbroath

Arbroath were denied a morale-boosting win ahead of the play-offs as substitute Alistair Love rescued a point for champions Albion.

Midfielder Robert Linn looked to have struck the decisive goal in the 86th minute for Arbroath, who were chasing only their second win in 17 league games, but Love equalised in stoppage time.

Goalscoring chances in the first-half had been few and far between. Albion pair Thomas McCluskey and Edwards Ferns, twice, pulled shots off target, while Scott McBride and Kieran McWalter went close for the visitors.

Arbroath gave as good as they got in the second period and Linn went close with a shot from inside the penalty area that flew just wide.

Albion striker John Gemmell's 76th-minute header forced a fumbled save from Arbroath goalkeeper Marc McCallum, who was unconvincing again when keeping out a shot from home midfielder Chris Cadden.

Arbroath appeared to have snatched the points through Linn, who converted Dylan Carreiro's pass from close range, but Love angled a right-footed shot into the bottom corner in the first minute of time added on.
