Coming from behind

ostrichArbroath came from behind to secure a comfortable win at East Stirlingshire.

The home side scored from their first chance, Kevin Cawley coolly converting Scott Johnston's pass.

Arbroath levelled on 15 minutes when Josh Falkingham's cross was slotted home by Keith Gibson before Ross Chisholm volleyed wide for the visitors.

Chisholm did set up Falkingham to head home early in the second half and David McGowan volley into the roof of the net to make sure of the points.

From the P&J: 

ARBROATH’S promotion credentials were boosted with a come-from-behind win over East Stirlingshire at Ochilview.

Shire got off to the perfect start and took the lead after just four minutes. The trialist’s perfect midfield pass released Stephen McGuire down the right and he hit a low cross which was swept into the net at the near post by Kevin Cawley.

But it wasn’t long before Arbroath were on level terms. A corner wasn’t dealt with well by the home team and Kieran McAnsepie picked up the pieces and whipped over a cross which Keith Gibson headed high into the net.

Neither team could carve out any more clear cut openings in the remainder of the first half but the visitors hit the front 90 seconds after the interval.

Ross Chisholm sent over a deep cross which the unmarked Josh Falkingham headed back across goal and into the net.

With eight minutes left Arbroath substitute David McGowan made the points safe with a close range effort from Falkingham’s cross.
