Alloa Athletic 1-1 East Stirlingshire

Scottish Football League

Substitute Craig Campbell's header seven minutes from time salvaged a point for Alloa as they drew with bottom club East Stirlingshire.

The striker scored his first goal of the season, cancelling out Michael Hunter's opener to extend Alloa's unbeaten run to four games.

The visitors, who have not won in Division Three since the opening day, nearly fell behind in the first half when goalkeeper Calum Antell had to push Kevin Cawley's effort over his crossbar.

The Shire took the lead in the 65th minute when Hunter headed in Scott Maxwell's cross from close range.

Alloa goalkeeper Scott Bain was twice called into action before Campbell came off the bench to earn the hosts a point, rising highest to nod home Ross McCord's free-kick.
