Conor McGrandles celebrates after scoring for Falkirk against Dundee

Falkirk replaced Dundee at the top of the Scottish Championship with victory over John Brown's side.

Conor McGrandles opened the scoring for the Bairns, firing home from the middle of the penalty area.

Dundee were reduced to 10 men when Kyle Letheren was sent off for fouling Roy Loy but the striker's penalty was saved by substitute Dan Twardzik.

However, he made amends by steering the ball past Twardzik midway through the second period.
