Match Preview

Defensive concerns for Arbroath Leaders Arbroath host Stranraer with concerns over the availability of a clutch of defenders. Craig Wedderburn and Darran Thomson are suspended, Alan Rattray is ruled out with a knee injury and captain Stuart Malcolm is also struggling to be passed fit. Full-back Kieran McAnespie faces a fitness test but midfielder Keith Gibson is expected to start despite a calf strain. Gayfield boss Paul Sheerin said: "This would be a great game to win and, with Queen's Park and Annan playing each other as well, we will have a clearer idea of our title chances by the end of it. "Win and we move 13 points clear of Stranraer and that looks like a big ask for them to pull back." Stranraer are missing suspended joint top goalscorer Craig Malcolm. Yet manager Keith Knox has no other concerns as his men bid to topple their high-flying opponents. The Blues boss said: "It is a blow to be missing Craig, but it is a chance for someone else to come in and show what they can do. "We have struggled recently and winning at Arbroath would be a great way to end our poor run. "Three points from this game could spark off a Championship charge, although we will need to play really well. They score a lot of goals and so do we and as long as we get one more than them I will be happy."

Match Report

Arbroath labour to draw Scottish Division Three leaders Arbroath struggled to a 2-2 draw against Stranraer at Gayfield Park. The teams played out a largely uneventful first half where neither keeper was seriously troubled and the deadlock continued until midway through the second period when the match came alive. Arbroath took the lead with an element of good fortune as substitute Lee Sabinda`s cross was turned into his own net by Declan Gallagher. Five minutes later, the scores were level as Scott Agnew`s free-kick across goal found the bottom corner. The Smokies were then reduced 10 men, with goalkeeper Darren Hill seeing red for a deliberate handball outside of his area. Moments later, the visitors scored again, this time substitute Armand One firing in from distance. Despite being a man down, Paul Sheerin`s side pressed for the equaliser which came with less than 10 minutes to go, Gavin Swankie claiming his 20th league goal of the season from just inside the area.
