Queen of the South 2-2 Falkirk

Falkirk were pegged back twice as their Championship promotion hopes were dented with a draw at Queen of the South.

Falkirk went ahead when Craig Sibbald's floated cross was headed in by Will Vaulks.

Derek Lyle brought the hosts level with a penalty after also winning the spot-kick.

Lee Miller's header put Falkirk back in front but Iain Russell's goal within 60 seconds ensured the spoils were shared.
