Queen of the South 2-2 Falkirk

Queen of the South fought back from two goals down to draw with promotion-chasing Falkirk in the Championship.

Blair Alston opened the scoring for the Bairns on the brink of half-time, heading an Aaron Muirhead cross into the bottom corner.

John Baird netted his 18th of the season shortly after the break.

But Derek Lyle pulled a goal back with a neat turn and finish and Iain Russell's strike levelled the scores in stoppage time.
