Carluke Crown 2 The Bruce 2
Relegation threatened Carluke fought back from a two goal defecit to grab a crucial point in their fight for First Division survival.
Goals from Alan Stewart and Willie Bell seemed to have put The Bruce on course to collect all three points, but Peter Connelly's fine strike four minutes before the interval sparked a revival from the determined home side.
Gerard McKendrick equalised six minutes after the restart when his corner kick curled straight into the net past an anonymous Greig Robinson.
Carluke were unlucky not to secure the victory with Stuart walker twice coming within inches of scoring in the dying minutes.
The match ended on a sour note when Carluke's Gary Murdoch and The Bruce's Alan Stewart were sent off in stoppage time following an unsightly skirmish.
