Cove Rangers and Partick Thistle drew 2-2 in a thrilling encounter between two of the sides in the thick of the League One promotion race.
Zak Rudden had put Partick in front in the first half only for Rory McAllister to level from the penalty spot.
Ryan Strachan had edged the hosts in front with a sensational long-range finish only for Scott Tiffoney to immediately peg them back.
The draw sees Cove move up to second in League One but keeps them four points off the league-leading Jags.
Cove made two changes from the 2-2 draw with Falkirk, with McAllister and Strachan coming into the side for Seb Ross and Daniel Higgins.
In the previous meeting between the two sides at the Balmoral Stadium McAllister grabbed a late winner, however it was Thistle to the fore early in this one.
Tiffoney’s free-kick from the left was low across the six-yard box and Rudden was on hand to touch it into the bottom corner.
A fraught and tenacious contest was levelled up on 21 minutes with the home side awarded a penalty by referee Craig Napier.
Cove recycled a free-kick towards the right-hand side of the area where Scott Ross was caught by a retreating Steven Bell. McAllister took over duties from the spot and sent goalkeeper Jamie Sneddon the wrong way.
