Match Report


Jamie Murphy scored a brace as Ayr United twice came from behind to snatch a point away to Partick Thistle.

The former Rangers winger got on the end of a Logan Chalmers cross just two minutes after Brian Graham had tapped home from close range.

Kris Doolan's side would hit the front early in the second period when Harry Milne was left unmarked at a corner.

But Ayr were level again when Fraser Bryden was brought down in the box and Murphy converted from the spot.

Ayr thought they had won it at the death, but the linesman's flag was raised to deny Bryden's finish, meaning the sides are separated by three points, with Thistle in third and United in fourth
