Rangers loanee James Maxwell scored a crucial goal as Ayr United came from a goal down to beat Albion Rovers in the third round of the Scottish Cup.
Maxwell is in his second loan spell away from Ibrox, having spent last season at Queen of the South.
The 19-year-old was in and out of the Ayr team during the early stages of the season but he had started six of the Honest Men’s last seven fixtures prior to this weekend and was named in the XI at Somerset Park on Saturday afternoon against the League Two opposition.
After a goalless first half, the visitors took the lead early in the second period through Maxwell Wright.
For eight minutes, a humiliating cup upset looked to be on the cards for the second-tier side.
However, in the 54th minute, Maxwell scored his second goal of the season to bring the hosts level.
The Gers loanee was released in behind the Rovers defence by Michael Moffat and he slotted home a cool finish.

The turnaround was then completed in the 65th minute when veteran Moffat got himself on the scoresheet.
Maxwell was subbed off with 13 minutes remaining and Ayr safely negotiated the closing stages to progress to the next round.
Elsewhere on Saturday afternoon, another Rangers loanee was involved in a nine-goal thriller in an overseas league.
