Dundee 1-1 Falkirk

Luke Leahy scores a late equaliser for Falkirk

Luke Leahy's injury-time equaliser rescued a point for Falkirk against Dundee at Dens Park.

Ryan Conroy's first-half penalty after Will Vaulks' handball had given the hosts the lead.

Falkirk's David McCracken had a goal chopped off for offside before Kyle Letheren saved well from Rory Loy.

But the visitors snatched a leveller when Phillip Roberts found Leahy and he shot into the bottom corner from outside the box.
