Scott Davidson put Stirling in front after 20 minutes with a right-foot shot. Arbroath hit back with Stuart Malcolm and Chris Innes both going close. It was left to Josh Falkingham to notch an 89th-minute equaliser to keep the visitors in touch at the top of the table.

Dumbarton 0 - 4 East Fife

Ryan Wallace headed the opener after four minutes and East Fife did not slacken. It was 2-0 when Stephen Grindlay turned the ball into his own net before Wallace scored his 20th goal of the season. Scott Dalziel added a fourth as Gordon Durie claimed his first win as a manager.

Brechin City 2 - 1 Albion Rovers

Veteran Charlie King struck in the final minute to give Brechin three points. Rory McKenzie was denied by Derek Gaston early on but neither side could score in the first half. McKenzie broke the deadlock from the penalty spot early but Robert Love equalised before King won it.

Airdrie United 3 - 0 Forfar Athletic

Nathan Blockley almost put Airdrie in front with a header which Greg Paterson tipped over just before half-time. Jamie Bain broke the deadlock in 54 minutes and Kevin Motion then hit the crossbar for Forfar. But a Paul Lovering penalty and a Willie McLaren strike settled it.
