Airdrie stopped by late Spence strike

Greig Spence's 90th-minute equaliser earned 10-man Raith Rovers a William Hill Scottish Cup first round replay against Airdrie following a 2-2 draw.

Raith had the lead in the 13th minute as Brian Graham's header was volleyed home by Simon Mensing from just inside the area.

But Airdrie were level 15 minutes later as Gavin Griffin hit a firm shot from the left of the area which Ross Laidlaw could not get down to.

Graham was then given his marching orders for an off the ball incident just after the re-start but Spence continued to be a major threat as he flashed another shot over the goal and then hit the bar from a corner.

Jason Thomson turned a cross into his goal to give Airdrie the lead but the visitors equalised at the death as Spence converted Grant Anderson's cross.
