Alloa Athletic moved off the bottom of the Scottish Championship after Jason Marr rescued a point in a draw at St Mirren Park.

On-loan Aberdeen striker Lawrence Shankland opened the scoring in the 68th minute as goalkeeper Andy McNeil dealt poorly with a back pass.

But Marr volleyed home Burton O'Brien's free-kick following a Jack Baird foul.

Shankland then had a chance to win it and Calum Gallagher had a penalty appeal waved away for the hosts.
