Match ends, Falkirk 1, Ross County 1.
Ross County dropped off the top of the Scottish Championship after being held to a draw away to bottom side Falkirk.
Deimantas Petravicius' 26th-minute cross was headed into his own net by Don Cowie as the midfielder attempted to clear to give the Bairns the lead.
Goalkeeper David Mitchell saved from Davis Keillor-Dunn and Ross Draper as the hosts survived wave after wave of County pressure.
But Iain Vigurs curled in a delightful equaliser 12 minutes from time.
It was not enough to deny Ayr United, who move to the top of the table after their 3-0 victory over second-bottom Alloa Athletic.
Ending a run of three straight defeats moves Ray McKinnon's Bairns to within four points of the Wasps.
