Battling Falkirk came from behind twice to grab a vital point and put a dent in Airdrieonians' promotion push.

But Alex Totten's men remain stuck in the relegation zone.

Mark Roberts put Airdrie ahead, but recent signing Keith Brown equalised with his first goal for Falkirk.

Stuart Taylor looked to have put the visitors on the road to victory until Lee Miller's late reply.

Airdrie went ahead in the 14th minute.

Keith Brown was penalised for a push on Mark Roberts and the forward dusted himself down before curling a magnificent free-kick high into the net.

Falkirk began the second half with renewed vigour and, after Ian Morris had struck the post with a free-kick, equalised in the 58th minute.

Brown leapt high above the Airdrie defence to head a Ricky Waddell corner past the stranded Neil Bennett.

Airdrie restored their lead in the 76th minute.

A corner was flicked on by Kevin James into the path of Taylor, who had the easy task of stroking the ball home from close range.

Falkirk refused to give in and hauled themselves level again eight minutes from time when Miller powerfully headed home a cross from Mark Kerr.

Falkirk: Hill, Rennie, McQuilken, Lawrie, Brown, Neil Murray, Morris, Kerr, Miller, Moss, Waddell. Subs: Cringean, McStay, Tano, Deuchar, Hogarth.

Airdrie: Bennett, Docherty, Smith, Stewart, Armstrong, James, Taylor, Henry, Coyle, Vareille, Roberts. Subs: McPherson, Gardner, MacDonald.
