Cowdenbeath 2-3 Arbroath- Match Report

Doris seals success for Smokies

Steven Doris' second-half strike earned Arbroath a crucial 3-2 win over league leaders Cowdenbeath.

The Red Lichties are now just four points behind their promotion rivals, having fallen behind just five minutes into the game to Marc McKenzie's long-range effort.

Doris' first goal of the afternoon brought Paul Sheerin's side level after 25 minutes before Kieran McAnespie unleashed a stunning 30-yard effort into the top corner to put the visitors ahead just four minutes later.

McKenzie brought Cowdenbeath back into the game from the penalty spot two minutes after half-time, after Stuart Malcolm upended Jon Robertson inside the area.

But 15 minutes from time Doris found the back of the net following substitute Collin Samuel's knock-down, as the away side ended a run of three games without a win to put pressure on their opponents who have now lost back-to-back games for the first time this season.
