Annan Athletic moved closer to promotion after battling past Forfar Athletic in the Scottish League One play-off semi-final.

Tony Wallace's crucial 88th-minute goal from the penalty spot earned a 1-1 draw in the second leg at Station Park - and a 2-1 aggregate victory for Peter Murphy's side.

It took Annan into a final against Edinburgh City, who saw off Dumbarton in the other semi-final.

Murphy's side will now hope to go one better than 2019 when they fell agonisingly short against Clyde in the play-offs.

After Michael Garrity's first-leg strike sent Annan into today's game with the advantage, Forfar's Stefan McCluskey levelled the aggregate scores with the opening goal afer 32 minutes.

But Wallace made no mistake from the spot after Ross Meechan was penalised for a foul just two minutes from time, to avert extra-time and send the Galabank club through.

Craig Slater had earlier hit the bar for Forfar while Annan keeper Greg Fleming made some impressive saves.

Annan's progress gives former Carlisle United favourite Murphy the opportunity to achieve promotion to Scotland's third tier in his fifth season at the helm.

Edinburgh, meanwhile, drew 1-1 with Dumbarton, securing a 5-2 aggregate victory to book their place in the two-legged final.

Annan go to Edinburgh next Tuesday before the second leg at Galabank next Friday.
