Falkirk 1-1 Livingston

Substitute Blair Alston rescued a point for 10-man Falkirk against Livingston.

Marc McNulty opened the scoring for the visitors at the Falkirk Stadium when he headed home a sumptuous cross from Jason Talbot.

Midfielder Alston restored parity with a low drive before the Bairns spurned the chance to seal victory.

Philip Roberts was sent off for violent conduct and Darren Jamieson saved Mark Millar's penalty after Simon Mensing fouled Craig Sibbald.
