Dumbarton 1-1 Falkirk

Falkirk's hopes of securing runners-up spot in the Scottish Championship suffered a blow after conceding a last-gasp equaliser to Dumbarton.

Mark Docherty was sent off for blocking John Baird's attempt with his hand and the striker scored from the spot.

Danny Rogers produced a smart save to deny Christian Nade and Kevin Cawley put the rebound just wide.

However, Nade was brought down by Rogers and Garry Fleming converted the second spot-kick of the match.
