Stenhousemuir 1-1 Ayr United

Ayr United continued their unbeaten start to the season after being held to a draw by Stenhousemuir.

The visitors had the perfect start when the Stenny defence gifted Ryan Donnelly the opener.

But Ayr were pegged back midway through the first half, Martin Grehan grabbing the equaliser with a low shot.

Ayr pushed for the winner in the second half, but were unable to break down a resolute Stenhousemuir defence. However, they remain top of League One.
