Alloa remain rooted to the bottom of the Scottish Championship table after letting a late lead slip in their draw with Ayr United.

Tom Walsh gave Ayr the lead, but later wasted a chance to double his tally and the visitors were made to pay when the hosts netted through Innes Cameron.

Alloa turned the game on its head when Lucas Williamson arrowed a shot past goalkeeper Viljami Sinisalo.

But Luke McCowan's cross was put into his own net by Jon Robertson.

It leaves Alloa still four points adrift of second-bottom Arbroath, who lost to Inverness, with Ayr United in seventh.
