Finn Graham
Finn Graham scored to earn Brechin City a point against Falkirk

Finn Graham's goal against the run of play snatched a draw for Brechin City against Falkirk in the Scottish Championship.

The visitors went ahead when Alex Harris drilled home after 15 minutes.

Rory Loy, James Craigen and Nathan Austin all squandered chances to extend the Bairns' advantage before Kalvin Orsi set up Graham to equalise.

And it took a fine Robbie Thomson save to deny Isaac Layne getting Brechin a stoppage-time winner.
