Falkirk lost ground on Hibernian and Rangers in the Championship after being held to a draw at Livingston.

The Bairns took the lead shortly before half-time when Craig Sibbald fired past goalkeeper Marc McCallum.

But Livi were level not long into the second half as Liam Buchanan struck in a crowded penalty area.

Paul Watson and Kevin O'Hara squandered good chances for Falkirk, who are now two points behind Hibs and four off leaders Rangers.
