Scotland’s unbeaten start in the FIFA Women’s World Cup qualifiers was extended by Abi Harrison’s late leveller against Ukraine.
Pedro Martinez Losa’s side had won their first three group games but found themselves behind at the break at Hampden Park.
Roksolana Kravchuk scored midway through the half for the visitors, the through ball by Anna Petryk being fired past Lee Alexander.
Abi Harrison went close three times in the first half, including stealing the ball off a defender to race at goal only to see her shot saved by Daryna Bonderchuk.
In the second half Caroline Weir had a 25-yard effort tipped onto the bar, Daryne Apanaschenko prevented Rachel Corsie from scoring at close range and Christy Grimshaw was another to go close to levelling.
Then in the 93rd-minute, late substitute Lana Clelland crossed for Harrison to head in the equaliser.
Scotland are now two points behind leaders Spain, whom they face in Seville on Tuesday.
