Entertaining finale as Lichties match play-off hopefuls

Last updated : 04 May 2009 By Fargone

Arbroath guaranteed their place in the Second Division next season after an entertaining draw with Peterhead at a sun-drenched Gayfield

The visitors took the lead at Gayfield in the 11th minute through Stuart Anderson's 20-yard strike. Steven Rennie equalised after 34 minutes after a great break down the right saw him beat the outrushing keeper to slot the ball in.

Peterhead took the lead again when Anderson scored from the penalty spot after Jamie Bishop fouled Craig Gunn.

But Arbroath levelled on the hour mark when Robbie Ross on the the edge of the box clinically fired across the keeps home from Barry Sellars' precise through ball.

Fan's views (from P&B)

WHM: Not too bad a game spoiled by a very poor ref,who gave us nothing.

Lichtie23: Thought we just about edged it, but a draw was a fair result.
Thought Robbie Ross and Barry Sellers were brilliant today.
