East Stirlingshire 1-1 Queen's Park

A last-gasp equaliser allowed basement side Queen's Park to snatch a draw away to league leaders East Stirlingshire.

Both sides failed to take goalscoring opportunities in an open first-half.

And it was the home side who went ahead when Michael McGowan found the bottom corner of Lucas Birinstinfil's net.

But the visitors pressed hard for an equaliser and got their reward at the death through Blair Spittal's right-footed effort - his fourth goal in three matches.
