Falkirk 1-1 Greenock Morton

Mark Millar's second-half penalty secured a draw for leaders Falkirk against bottom side Morton.

Ton goalkeeper Derek Gaston saved Rory Loy's 39th-minute penalty after David Robertson had fouled Conor McGrandles.

Things went from bad to worse for the Bairns five minutes later when Dougie Imrie fired in from the middle of the area to give the visitors the lead.

But Millar equalised from the spot in the 63rd minute after Fouad Bachirou had fouled Craig Sibbald in the area.
