Alloa Athletic 2-2 Queen of the South

A late header from Dale Hilson rescued a point for Queen of the South at relegated Alloa in the Championship.

Iain Flannigan knocked the hosts into the lead from a first-half penalty, with Queens replying through a Derek Lyle spot-kick.

The rock-bottom side moved ahead again when Conor McManus fired home from the edge of the penalty area with 14 minutes to go.

But Hilson headed home an 86th-minute leveller from Mark Millar's corner.
