Dumbarton 2-2 Ayr United

Ten-man Scottish Championship strugglers Ayr scored twice at the death to draw with hosts Dumbarton.

Ayr's Ross Docherty was dismissed in the first half for a reckless tackle on Andy Stirling.

Hibernian loanee Sam Stanton scored twice after the break as the dominant Sons pressed home their advantage.

But Ayr would stun the hosts in stoppage time, with Michael Rose firing in a 25-yard free-kick before Craig Moore's penalty levelled.
