Sean Higgins scored twice in the final three minutes as Stenhousemuir grabbed a dramatic win against Ayr United in Scottish League One.

Higgins set up Ben Greenhalgh to fire home Stenny's opener in the first half.

Michael Moffat's sweeping shot drew Ayr level and Alan Forrest netted from six yards to put the hosts in front.

However, Higgins converted a penalty following Gordon Pope's handball and completed the turnaround by striking the winner.
