Floyd Ayite's injury time goal earned Reims a 1-1draw from their Ligue 1 match at Evian and denied their opponents a victory which would have moved them further clear of the bottom three.

The home side, who beat title hopefuls Paris St Germain last time out, took the lead 16 minutes from time through Jonathan Mensah's powerful shot.

However, Ayite earned the visitors a point when he received the ball from Eliran Atar and beat Evian goalkeeper Jesper Hansen at his near post with a left-foot shot.

Evian came closest to breaking the deadlock in the first half when Youssouf Sabady saw his powerful 11th-minute shot rebound off a post.

The visitors threatened eight minutes later when Mads Albaek shot narrowly over following good work by Nicolas De Preville and Odair Fortes.

Midway through the half, Evian's Daniel Wass tested goalkeeper Kossi Agassa with a free-kick, while at the other end Hansen blocked Albaek's 25-yard effort.

Agassa saved from Sabady early in the second half before Atila Turan found the side-netting for Reims in the 53rd minute.

De Preville shot straight at Hansen, while Agassa denied Marco Ruben at the other end midway through the second half.

The deadlock was broken in the 74th minute when Mensah blasted home after Ruben and Kevin Berigaud had combined.

It looked like being enough as the final stages were played out with limited goalmouth activity.

However, in the first minute of time added on Aissa Mandi's throw found Atar, who set up Ayite for the equaliser.
