Falkirk were pegged back twice as their Championship promotion hopes were dented with a draw at Palmerston where the Doonhamers were well worth a share of the points.

Falkirk dservedly went ahead when Craig Sibbald's floated cross was headed in by Will Vaulks. Queens however adjusted their formation and slowly worked their way back into the game.

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.

Queens bombarded the visitor's goal in the dying minutes sensing a famous victory but the Bairns held on.
