Falkirk stayed in touch with Scottish Championship leaders Dundee with victory over Raith Rovers.

An own goal by Dougie Hill put the Bairns ahead but John Baird headed Raith level.

Callum Booth's penalty gave the hosts the lead but David McCracken levelled before half-time from close range.

And second-half strikes by Rory Loy and Mark Millar, the latter a free-kick, secured all three points for the visitors.
