Scottish League One: Albion Rovers 1-1 Forfar Athletic

Substitute Kerr Hay earned struggling Forfar Athletic a draw with Albion Rovers in their first game since Dick Campbell was sacked as manager.

Forfar had taken just four points during a winless 11-match league run coming into the match.

And they looked set for more disappointment when Paul Willis converted Gary Fisher's right-wing cross from close range.

But Hay found the back of the net with a thunderous volley.
