Result: Peterhead grab late winner in exciting Scottish League One match against Forfar

Gary McDonald scores an 87th-minute goal in an exciting Scottish League One 3-2 victory over Forfar Athletic.

Peterhead grabbed a late victory in Scottish League One in a back-and-forth 3-2 victory over Forfar Athletic this evening.

Forfar scored early, with Gavin Swankie netting from 12 yards after Iain Campbell's assist in the fourth minute.

Swankie was causing problems for the Peterhead defence, with another shot saved and one more going wide of the goal in the opening 10 minutes. Michael Travis's header was saved a few minutes later by Peterhead goalkeeper Graeme Smith.

Peterhead scored two goals in quick succession, as Jamie Redman beat former Scotland goalkeeper Rab Douglas in the 38th minute, before Andy Rodgers headed in two minutes later.

Half-time Forfar substitute Danny Denholm nearly made an immediate impact but his shot was saved 30 seconds after the restart. He then missed the target a minute later.

Forfar's task was made harder in the 68th minute when 35-year-old Stuart Malcolm was sent off for violent conduct.

Gary McDonald tried to capitalise on the red card with 10 minutes remaining, but his shot went over the crossbar.

Denholm grabbed an equaliser for Forfar, heading into the bottom-right corner to steal a point for his team.

McDonald scored a late winner from close range to give Peterhead the three points.

Peterhead are now seven points behind the playoff places, with Forfar missing the chance to go level with top-of-the-table Greenock Morton.
