MATCH REPORT: QOS 2 Falkirk 2

Paul Hartley said: “It was an excellent finish, and I’m pleased the players kept going to the end. They were excellent in the first half we were by far the better team and controlled it. We’re disappointed we didn’t start the second half properly and lost two poor goals from corners.

”We showed good character and didn’t get beat – that’s the main thing.”
