Mallan levelled the match with only a couple of minutes of regulation time remaining

A late Stephen Mallan free-kick secured a draw for St Mirren against Raith Rovers in the Scottish Championship.

Mark Stewart fired hosts Raith ahead with a shot high into the net from close range shortly before half-time.

The Buddies were given an opportunity to level when Kyle Benedictus fouled Lewis McLear and Mallan's strike beat goalkeeper Kevin Cuthbert.

St Mirren keeper Jamie Langfield had made saves to block James Craigen's free-kick and Iain Davidson's header.

Ray McKinnon's Raith miss the chance to move into the top four but do draw level on points with Greenock Morton while St Mirren, in seventh, move a point clear of the bottom three.
