Scott Pittman and Craig Sibbald
Livingston's Scott Pittman and Craig Sibbald of Falkirk battle for the ball

Livingston drew level on points with third-placed Queen of the South despite being held to a draw by Falkirk.

Neither side had played since November due to the weather, but produced an entertaining contest.

The Bairns had the better of the first half with Louis Longridge, Lee Miller and Reghan Tumility going close.

But Livi's James Penrice fired one just wide and nodded an effort off the bar in the second half as the hosts went closest to breaking the deadlock.

Livingston remain fourth in the Championship on goal difference, level on 26 points with Queens.

Falkirk are still second-from-bottom on 10 points, eight adrift of Dumbarton and seven clear of Brechin City.
