Airdrie United 1-1 St Johnstone


Stephen McGuire nodded home a late equaliser for Airdrie in a hard-fought encounter at the Excelsior Stadium.

The hosts spurned a great chance to take the lead a minute before the break when Simon Lynch blazed over.

St Johnstone's Derek Holmes then went close before Saints took the lead when William McLachlan conceded a penalty and Liam Craig scored from the spot.

With an away win looking likely, McGuire rose to head home Joe Cardle's teasing corner.
