Stenhousemuir 1-1 Ayr United

Ross McNeil's late equaliser ended Stenny's four-match losing streak as they earned a draw at home to Ayr.

The Warriors had fallen behind in the 27th minute when Craig Malcolm got on the end of a Kevin Kyle knockdown.

Michael Moffat went close to securing a win for Ayr, but his shot was stopped by Chris Smith.

McNeil, replacing Sean Lynch, pounced on a loose ball to drive in an 89th-minute leveller, which prevented Ayr going third.
