Falkirk come from behind to beat Ayr United after extra-time in the Ramsdens Cup second round.

Craig Malcolm's turn and shot beat Bairns goalkeeper Michael McGovern shortly before half-time.

Rory Loy tapped home on the rebound after Jay Fulton's shot had been saved and there was no winner in regulation time.

But substitute Scott Shepherd headed the visitors ahead in extra-time and Ayr could not recover.
