Smokies suffer survival blow

Arbroath remain bottom of the table going into the final weekend of the season after a 2-1 defeat to Dunfermline.

Andrew Geggan struck 11 minutes from time to prevent Arbroath moving above East Fife into ninth in the table.

Ryan Thomson sent the second-placed Pars into a 14th-minute lead, following up after Scott Morrison failed to hold Stephen Husband's shot before Robert Linn fired narrowly wide as the hosts pushed for a way back into the game.

The Smokies got their deserved equaliser 11 minutes into the second period when Michael Travis forced the ball home from a corner but, with the game approaching the final 10 minutes, Geggan popped up to slot in from close range and secure a first win in four attempts.
