Arbroath 0-0 Forfar


Arbroath and Forfar played out a 0-0 draw in the first leg of their Second Division play-off final.

Andy Tod threatened twice with headers for Forfar early on, while Ewan Moyes and Steven Doris fired wide from the edge of the area for Arbroath.

Mitchel Megginson forced Forfar's Euan McLean to parry away a powerful strike, then at the other end Graham Gibson volleyed over as Forfar rallied.

An Alan Rattray header tested McLean but could not seal a win for Arbroath.

The teams meet again on Sunday in the second leg of the final.
