Queen's Park 2-2 Stirling Albion

Aidan Connolly netted a late equaliser to earn Queen's Park a draw at home to Stirling.

Stirling, who have now lost just one of their last 12 matches, took the lead in the 12th minute when Gary Thom headed in a Kieran McAnespie free-kick from six yards.

They came close to doubling their advantage six minutes before the break but Jordan White's close-range header from another McAnespie set-piece struck a post.

But Stirling did move further ahead 10 minutes into the second half when White set up Scott Davidson to score from close in.

Queen's Park, though, hit back within two minutes as David Anderson found the bottom corner from 12 yards to claim his first goal of the campaign.

Connolly then levelled with 13 minutes remaining from similar range to dent Stirling's faint play-off prospects and end their hopes of a first win at Hampden Park since 2004.
