Falkirk 1-1 Ayr: Match Report
Peter Grant earns Falkirk home point against Ayr
Falkirk and Ayr shared a 1-1 Ladbrokes Championship draw in an eventful match at Falkirk Stadium.
Gary Harkins gave Ayr the lead midway through the first half, at the end of which Falkirk's John Baird missed a penalty but Peter Grant equalised.
Ayr goalkeeper Greg Fleming made a good early save before Harkins put the visitors ahead, firing high into the net after Falkirk failed to clear.
Just before the break Fleming denied Baird from the spot, after Scott McKenna had brought down Bob McHugh, but Grant headed powerfully in from the resulting corner.
At the end of a lively second half the hosts had a late period of pressure with a McHugh header hitting the bar amid Fleming making some fine saves.
