At the eighth time of asking, St. Mirren looked set to finally record their first win of the season against Aberdeen on Monday night.
But Peter Pawlett's 85th minute equaliser means that the wait goes on for Conor Newton and his Paisley team-mates.
The on-loan Newcastle midfielder played the whole game as Steven Thompson put the Buddies in front before the late goal.
Two days earlier, also north of the border, Steven Logan made his full professional debut in the impressive surroundings of Scotland's national stadium.
He played for 70 minutes as Annan Athletic beat Queen of the South 5-2 at Hampden Park on Saturday.
It was a good weekend for the Amalfitano family, meanwhile, as Morgan scored for West Brom at Manchester United on Saturday after Romain helped Dijon beat Auxerre on Friday.
The Magpies midfielder, on a season-long loan with the French side, played for 56 minutes of the 1-0 victory in Ligue 2.
Shane Ferguson was a 76th minute substitute as Birmingham lost 2-0 to Reading on Saturday with former Magpie Danny Guthie scoring both goals for the Royals.
Michael Richardson watched Accrington Stanley's 0-0 draw with Plymouth from the bench while Mehdi Abeid was an unused substitute as Panathinaikos beat Asteras Tripolis 2-1 on Sunday.
