Inverness Caledonian Thistle are through to the semi-final of the Scottish Premiership play-offs after a 1-1 draw with Ayr secured a 4-2 aggregate win.
Luke McCowan opened the scoring for the visitors before Coll Donaldson headed Inverness level 11 minutes from time.
The Highland side will now host Dundee United in the first leg of the play-off semi-final on Tuesday.
The return leg is at Tannadice on Saturday, 18 May.
Trailing 3-1 from the first leg, Ayr started brightly and 19-year-old McCowan’s right-footed shot into the top right-hand corner after 19 minutes gave them the perfect start.
Chasing a second that would have forced extra-time, Ayr’s Robbie Crawford failed to take two chances after the break.
Lawrence Shankland’s efforts were also cleared by Donaldson and Jamie McCart for Inverness, while goalkeeper Mark Ridgers also denied Ayr’s star striker.
But Donaldson’s glancing header from Liam Polworth’s free-kick ensured Inverness would be the side who are still in with a chance of playing Premiership football next season.
