Cove Rangers picked up a huge three points in their fight for Scottish Championship survival thanks to a 1-0 victory over third-bottom Arbroath.

Morgyn Neill struck in the 84th minute to leave Cove three points from safety.

The hosts had the first chance of the game through Ryan Dow but he saw his effort saved by Scott Fox.

Arbroath had another opportunity midway through the half but Dow curled his effort high over the bar.

Cove almost hit the front with 10 minutes to go but Jason Naismith’s flicked header was tipped wide by Derek Gaston.

The visitors got the winner six minutes from time as Iain Vigurs’ corner was met by the head of Neill, ending Cove’s run of 10 games without a win.
