Broughty Athletic 2. Linlithgow Rose 2 (Super League)

Linlithgow let a two-goal lead slip through their fingers as they could only leave Tayside with a point. Rose started brightly and Tommy Coyne had them in front seven minutes in after slack defending. The visitors were well on top until a moment of madness saw Reece Donaldson red carded ten minutes from half-time. Despite their reduced numbers, Rose looked good for the points when Kevin Kelbie doubled their lead in the opening minute of the second half. However, James Collier pulled a goal back after 65 minutes and then with time running out, Stewart McConnachie prodded home a 90th-minute leveller.
