Forfar Athletic 2-2 Ayr United

Ayr United bounced back from a two-goal deficit and a red card to draw with Forfar Athletic at Station Park.

Trailing 2-0 at half-time, Ayr pulled one back through Andrew Graham but then had Nicky Devlin sent off - only to level through Ross Caldwell.

Less than two minutes had elapsed when Danny Denholm put Forfar in front, firing Andrew Black's cross into the roof of the net.

Iain Campbell doubled their advantage before the hosts were pegged-back.
