Ton deny Bairns vital three points

Falkirk's chances of automatic promotion to the Scottish Premiership took a huge dent following a disappointing 1-1 draw at already-relegated Morton.

The hosts did all the early pressing as Thomas O'Ware flashed a header wide while Dougie Imrie saw his shot from distance fly dangerously over the bar before Blair Alston somehow side-footed wide from six yards for the Bairns at the other end.

With half-time rapidly approaching, though, the visitors broke the deadlock when Rory Loy squared for Conor McGrandles who did the rest with a neat side-footed finish beyond Nicolas Caraux to offer hope of a crucial three points.

However, despite dominating after the restart, Falkirk relinquished their lead when Rowan Vine poked the ball over the line following a goalmouth scramble to grab a point for the hosts.
