Airdrieonians 2-2 Raith Rovers

Raith Rovers' Jonny Court celebrates
Raith Rovers striker Jonny Court claimed the late equaliser

A stoppage-time own goal rescued a point for Scottish League One title hopefuls Raith Rovers away to Airdrieonians.

Greig Spence fired the second-placed visitors ahead from 12 yards after 22 minutes - his 24th goal of the season.

Jake Hastie replied from close range two minutes later and, when the scorer had a shot saved by Graeme Smith, Cameron Russell pounced on the rebound.

But a home foot deflected in the late equaliser from a Jason Thomson cross.

Rovers' Jonny Court claimed the credit after causing confusion with a front-post dummy.

The point means the Kirkcaldy side are five points adrift of leaders Ayr United, who came from behind to defeat bottom side Queen's Park on Saturday, but with a game in hand.

Airdrieonians stay seventh, two points behind Stranraer and three ahead of neighbours Albion Rovers.
