A HUGELY controversial penalty decision allowed Falkirk to take a point late in today’s clash with Dumbarton at the C&G Systems Stadium.

Isaac Layne (pictured) gave Sons the lead on the half hour mark as part of a resolute and determined first half performance.

There was more pressure to absorb after the restart but a firm defensive effort looked set to ensure all three points.

That was until referee Barry Cook decided on 89 minutes that Kyle Hutton was guilty of a handling offence in the area, and Declan McManus converted the penalty.

It was harsh on Dumbarton, whose efforts had merited the victory.
