Dumbarton ended a run of four straight defeats after sharing six-goals with Falkirk, who drop back to fifth place in the Championship.

Scott Taggart knocked the Sons in front from close range but Craig Sibbald's low strike levelled and the hosts moved ahead through Luke Leahy's effort which went in off the crossbar.

Darren Petrie and Archie Campbell then capitalised on slack Falkirk marking.

But Falkirk battled back and levelled through David Smith's 80th-minute shot.
