Speaking to the press ahead of Saturday’s Cup Tie, Bairns boss, Ray McKinnon, said: “I think last weekend was a really good point for us considering we were fairly depleted squad wise. Our two strikers who normally play every week for us weren’t there, Prince Buaben was missing as was Aaron Muirhead. All in all I think it was a good point for us.
“Both Aaron and Prince are getting there, it was great to have Aaron back in training on Thursday so he isn’t too far away now. He has been working really hard and has come back a few weeks ahead of schedule. It’ll be good to have him back as it will bring back some good competition in the back line.
“We will approach this match the same as we would a league game. We have had Stenhousemuir watched and we have a lot of reports on them so we will treat them the same as any other opponent. This is a really important game for us, we want to be in the hat for January. It’s a good opportunity to keep the momentum I think we have got going, since the Ross County match we haven’t deserved to lose a game. The way the players have responded has been outstanding.
“We want to win on Saturday, it is as simple as that. We want to be in the next round of the cup. They have set up in the same way just about over the last three games so we don’t really expect that to change.”
The referee for tomorrow’s match is Alan Newlands and should it be required the replay date has been set for Tuesday evening (27th November) at The Falkirk Stadium.
The draw for the 4th Round of the William Hill Scottish Cup takes place at 5:45pm on Saturday evening.
