Scottish League One: Arbroath book semi-final spot

The Red Lichties had hit the woodwork twice before their luck changed on 34 minutes, Scott Robertson nodding in after a corner by player-manager Paul Sheerin had been flicked on by Alex Keddie.
Stenhousemuir were left with a mountain to climb when striker John Gemmell was shown a straight red card four minutes into the second half following a clash with Stuart Malcolm.

The Warriors kept fighting, though, and they were thrown a lifeline when Keddie fouled Stewart Kean inside the area in the dying seconds.
However, the Stenhousemuir striker blazed the spot-kick over the bar and Arbroath reached their first semi-final since a League Cup encounter against Third Lanark in 1959.
