Arbroath leave it late to deny Stranraer

Steven Doris' 92nd-minute winner denied Stranraer their first away point of the season as Arbroath snatched a 2-1 victory.

Stranraer, the Second Division's bottom club, went into the encounter having lost all five of their games on the road so far this term, scoring just twice in the process.

And following an entertaining start to proceedings in which both sides threatened, Stranraer's hopes of breaking their duck did not look promising as Paul Currie volleyed home well from the edge of the area to hand Arbroath the lead in the 23rd minute.

Derek Holmes headed against a post as the home side almost doubled their lead immediately.

And the miss proved costly just two minutes into the second half as Robert Love converted Sean Winter's left-wing cross from close range to level matters.

Chances were not as forthcoming after the break but, as both sides looked set to finish with a point, Doris smashed home Mark Baxter's cross to steal the points with almost the last kick of the game.
