Alloa held by Stenhousemuir after letting two-goal lead slip

Alloa remain top of Scottish League One but they will reflect on a missed opportunity after letting a two-goal lead slip to draw 2-2 at bottom side Stenhousemuir.

Fraser Kerr's own goal gave Alloa the perfect start and they were in full control after Jim Goodwin's strike early in the second half.

But Goodwin went from hero to villain when he was sent off just minutes later and Willis Furtado's goal 11 minutes from time set up a grandstand finish.

Alloa appeared set to hold on for all three points, only for Oli Shaw to net a stoppage-time equaliser for Stenhousemuir.

Livingston were behind Alloa only on alphabetical order heading into the weekend but they slipped to third after an afternoon to forget at East Fife.

Jamie Insall scored either side of Chris Kane's goal to put the hosts 3-0 up at the break and although Josh Mullin pulled one back for Livingston just before the hour mark, there was no way back.

The 3-1 defeat was compounded by red cards to Michael Miller and Alan Lithgow in the dying minutes.

Brechin took advantage of the slip-ups and moved up to second with a 2-1 victory over Peterhead.

Rory McAllister gave Peterhead the lead but Ally Love levelled before Andy Jackson's strike six minutes from time gave Brechin all three points.

Goals from Liam Dick and Craig Malcolm either side of half-time earned Stranraer a 2-0 win at Queen's Park, who had Darren Miller sent off in the early stages of the second half.

Albion won by the same scoreline at 10-man Airdrie courtesy of first-half efforts from Paul Willis and Mark Ferry. Iain Russell was sent off for the hosts midway through the second period.
