Ayr United 2-2 Forfar Athletic

League One leaders Forfar Athletic left it late as Michael Travis' stoppage-time strike rescued a draw with Ayr.

Lewis Allan put the visitors ahead against the run of play, firing across goal into the bottom corner.

Craig Moore levelled with a well-controlled volley and Alan Forrest shaped a low shot into the bottom corner to give Ayr the lead.

Forfar's equaliser came in the final moments as Travis converted from close range from Iain Campbell's free-kick.
