Ayr United 1-1 St Mirren

Tom Walsh struck a late equaliser to earn St Mirren a draw at Ayr which leaves both sides searching for a first win in the Championship this season.

Jamie Adams' 14th-minute header, from Brian Gilmour's cross, had looked like ensuring Ayr halted their three-match losing streak.

Saints' David Clarkson had gone close with a header before Walsh nodded in Lawrence Shankland's long throw.

And St Mirren almost snatched a winner but John Sutton had his shot blocked.
