    Alloa Athletic and Ayr United drew 1-1 at a rain drenched and windy Somerset Park today, the teams will now need to meet again in a replay at the Indodrill Stadium, Alloa on Tuesday 11th November, 2014. Liam Buchanan put “The Wasps” in front after 29 minutes, his fourth goal in past five games, Graeme Holmes inch perfect pass had allowed Liam to run in behind the home defence and bullet the ball high into the net. Five minutes later the home side drew level after Ryan Donnelly managed a back header from a corner to equalise. Ayr United had plenty of possession but the closest the sides came to a winner is when Stephen Simmons struck a chipped volley which came back off the crossbar to deny Alloa a winner on the day. Craig McDowall pulled of a wonderful save to deny Ryan Donnelly his second goal of the day the closest the home side came to clinching the tie.
