Stan­ley Ath­letic fell to de­feat at the hands of Ar­den on Satur­day as they dropped points in the league.

The Pais­ley side strug­gled to get go­ing in the open­ing pe­riod but man­aged to win them­selves a penalty from their first piece of play.

Neil Mor­ri­son stepped up and crashed the spot-kick off the bar as Stan­ley spurned their glo­ri­ous op­por­tu­nity.

That came back to bite them, with Ar­den scor­ing on the stroke of half-time to go ahead.

Ho w e v e r, St a n l e y re­grouped im­me­di­ately and some­how still had time to level the scores be­fore the break, with Mark Tay­lor round­ing off a well-worked move.

In the sec­ond half, Ath­letic had a cou­ple of op­por­tu­ni­ties, but it was Ar­den scor­ing again with a fine in­di­vid­ual ef­fort that saw one of their play­ers waltz through the de­fence.

A third goal fol­lowed to seal the points, with Stan­ley hav­ing to set­tle for de­feat.
