While Ton’s top team lost the game in the 94th minute at Raith Rovers, Andy Millen’s side were held to a 2-2 draw when the Blues netted a leveller in the second minute of stoppage time.

The hosts edged ahead 10 minutes before half-time, Jon Scullion firing an emphatic finish inside the left-hand post to score for the third consecutive match.

Stranraer drew level on 64 minutes when John Tennent misjudged the flight of a floated ball into the box and Kieran McLaughlin pounced to slot a calm finish past Jamie McGowan.

Jai Quitongo looked to have won it for the Cappielow kids with a fantastic angled drive into the bottom-left corner three minutes from the end.

But the Blues’ Calvin Kemp weaved his way in off the left and lashed under goalkeeper McGowan in the 92nd minute to snatch a point.

Manager Millen’s frustration was magnified by the fact the referee had ignored and overruled his linesman’s flag in the build-up to the goal.

Although Ton were disappointed to draw, the point was enough to move them above Ayr United and back to the top of the Development League West.

Meanwhile, the second Renfrewshire derby of the season has been switched to a Friday night after the match was selected for live television coverage by BBC Alba.

Morton and St Mirren were set to meet in Paisley on Saturday 21 November but will now play a day earlier. The sides drew 0-0 at Cappielow back in August in a fixture which was also brought forward and screened live by the Gaelic language station.
