Clark clinches point for Doonhamers

Nicholas Clark netted a stoppage-time equaliser as Queen of the South preserved their unbeaten run with a 1-1 draw at Arbroath.

The runaway leaders trailed to Euan Smith's 83rd-minute opener, but Clark struck to extend his side's unbeaten run to 14 games.

Scott Morrison was the busier of the two goalkeepers in the first half, denying Daniel Carmichael from outside the area on two occasions.

The home side had lost their last three at home, but created the better chances in the second period. Paul Sheerin was denied from close range by Lee Robinson, before the visiting keeper blocked well from Derek Holmes.

With seven minutes left, Smith found the top corner from 35 yards to give Arbroath the lead.

But they were denied a famous victory - that would have moved them into the play-off places - as Clark bundled the ball in from close range in the third minute of stoppage time.
