Lawrence Shankland fired Ayr ahead from the penalty spot

Ayr's home struggles continued in the Scottish Championship as Greg Kiltie's tap-in earned a point for Morton.

Lawrence Shankland gave the hosts a first-half lead from the penalty spot with his 22nd league goal this season.

But Kiltie equalised 20 minutes from time, meaning Ayr have won just one of their last eight home league games.

Ayr stay third, eight points behind Dundee United with two games in hand. Morton, winless in four, sit sixth, 11 points adrift of the top four.
