Falkirk 1-1 Queen of the South

Chris Higgins' own goal secured Falkirk a draw at home to managerless Queen of the South in the Scottish Championship.

Gavin Reilly went close for Queens in the first half, his effort saved by Jamie MacDonald.

But Reilly did find the net when to edge Queens into the lead with a shot from Danny Carmichael's pass.

However, Higgins deflected Craig Sibbald's free-kick past Zander Clark to level the match with only seven minutes left on the clock.
