Falkirk leave it late to beat Dumbarton

Falkirk ended their Ladbrokes Scottish Championship season with a 1-0 win at Dumbarton.

Nathan Austin's header five minutes from time ensured the Bairns enter the play-offs with a win.

Lewis Vaughan came close to giving Dumbarton, who finished the season in eighth place, the lead in the first-half but saw his effort clip the top of the bar as both sides failed to find a breakthrough.

Falkirk goalkeeper Robbie Thomson got down well to save Samuel Stanton's low effort before Austin saw his header cleared off the line.

But the 23-year-old made no mistake in the 85th minute as the striker nodded home Luke Leahy's cross as Falkirk finish second in the league.
