Result: Late drama as Falkirk hold Rotherham United

Falkirk and Rotherham United play out a 2-2 draw in Friday evening's friendly match.

Botti Bia-bi scored a dramatic late equaliser to secure a 2-2 draw for Falkirk in their pre-season friendly against Rotherham United on Friday evening.

The Scottish Championship outfit started with a flurry, taking the lead with seven minutes on the clock when Olumide Durojaiye fired into the top corner.

Rotherham pressed for an equaliser and got their just desserts shortly after the 20-minute mark as Kieran Agard was on hand to pounce after Jordan Bowery's header came back off the crossbar.

The Championship side had a glorious chance to take the lead late in the 79th minute when Agard went clean through on goal and rounded Falkirk goalkeeper Jamie MacDonald, only to hit the post rather than the back of the empty net.

There was late drama to come as Conor Newton thought he had won the match for the Millers when he curled one into the top corner with two minutes remaining, but it was the hosts who had the final say.

Bia-bi netted in the dying seconds, chipping the ball over Rotherham shot-stopper Scott Loach to ensure that the friendly ended honours even.
