Queen of the South 2-2 Stenhousemuir

Brown Ferguson scored for Stenhousemuir as they came from behind to hold nine-man Queen of the South to a draw.

The table-topping home team made it 1-0 after just three minutes when Danny Carmichael's superb cross was headed in at the back post by midfielder Mark Durnan.

The Doonhamers went down to 10 men on the stroke of half-time when Derek Young received a straight red card for a late challenge on Greg Ross.

Despite the reduced man power, the hosts extended their lead when Nicky Clark headed into the top corner from close range after 48 minutes.

The visitors made it 2-1 in the 68th minute when John Gemmell poked home from six yards out before Queens' Paul Burns fouled Bryan Hodge in the area two minutes later.

Stenny's Ferguson then slammed home the penalty that followed to draw his side level and the home side's numbers were reduced further, Kevin Holt seeing red for a mis-timed tackle in the 90th minute of the game.
