Scotland's Rachel Corsie challenges scorer Helen Lander

Scotland's women twice came back from a goal down to draw with their Welsh counterparts in a Euro 2013 qualifier at Tynecastle.

Amie Lea's strike put the visitors in front after three minutes and Helen Lander came close to getting a second.

Jennifer Beattie set up Jane Ross to fire the Scots level but Wales went ahead again when Helen Lander rounded goalkeeper Gemma Fay to score.

But Beattie headed Scotland's second equaliser before the break.

Welsh keeper Nicola Davis saved another Beattie header after the interval and Scotland's Megan Sneddon twice came close in the closing stages.

Wales are next in action away to Israel on 20 November while the Scots resume their qualifying Group 4 campaign next year away to France on 31 March, with the French hosting Wales four days after that.
