Falkirk 1-1 Dumbarton

A late Chris Kane goal earned Dumbarton a point against Falkirk.

The Bairns took the lead early on when midfielder Craig Sibbald headed home from Tom Taiwo's chipped cross.

Falkirk almost made it two on the half-hour after Rory Loy teed-up Joe Shaughnessy but his effort came crashing off the crossbar.

Jamie McDonald pulled off a great save to deny Kane in the second half but the keeper could not prevent the striker tapping home in stoppage-time.
