Arbroath bounced back from 3-1 down to earn a 3-3 draw against an Aberdeen XI at Gayfield tonight (Tuesday) in yet another pre-season warm-up.

The Lichties opened the scoring on 13 minutes when trialist Lari Yao slotted home a Bobby Linn cross.

But just minutes later they found themselves back on level terms when Stephen O’Neill netted a penalty for the visitors.

And things went from bad to worse when two strikes from Lawrence Shankland saw the Dons go in at half-time 3-1 ahead.

However a scrappy goal from Steven Milne and a precision header from Alan Cook after the interval saw the Lichties fight back to earn a draw.

Team: Morrison, Sullivan (Travis 50), Lindsay (Hamilton 62), Smith (Sheerin 62), Little, Keddie, Linn, Chisholm (Banjo 70), Sibanda (Bayne 46), Milne and Yao (Cook 46).
