Toyosi Olusanya’s late equaliser earned Arbroath a 1-1 draw at Cove Rangers, who were denied a first home Scottish Championship win since December.

Substitute striker Olusanya’s 88th-minute header cancelled out Leighton McIntosh’s second-half strike and extended Arbroath’s unbeaten league run on the road to five matches.

Arbroath went close to taking the lead just after the hour-mark at Balmoral Stadium when substitute striker Bobby Linn’s effort from inside the area hit the crossbar.

McIntosh fired Cove ahead from close range in the 75th minute after being set up by Luis Longstaff.

Olusanya, on loan from St Mirren, had earlier forced Cove goalkeeper Scott Fox to punch away his fierce drive before heading home Thomas O’Brien’s cross for his first goal for Arbroath.

The point apiece leaves Rangers four points above second-bottom Arbroath in the table.
