Next up for The Bairns is a top of the table clash with league leaders Cove Rangers!
Kick-off this Saturday is at 3pm.
HEAD TO HEAD
The only previous competitive game between the sides took place during the 2017/18 season. Two quick-fire second-half goals helped The Bairns win a tough tie at Inverurie Locos’ Harlaw Park and earn a place in the Scottish Cup quarterfinals.
The game started quickly, with the sides level at 1-1 after only three minutes after Alex Jakubiak’s opener for Falkirk was instantly cancelled out by Mitch Megginson.
Falkirk started the second half even faster, with Craig Sibbald volleying home to restore the lead after 46 minutes and Jakubiak getting his second of the game only two minutes later.
Both sides are unbeaten so far in the league, with The Bairns draws against Partick Thistle and Forfar seeing the Aberdeenshire side four points ahead.
Falkirk secured qualification to the round of 16 of the Betfred Cup after cruising to a 0-4 win at Dumbarton last Tuesday. The win came after a late Charlie Telfer winner won a point for Falkirk in an action packed 90 minutes at Firhill the previous Saturday.
The visitors have started the league season in extremely strong form, winning all four of their League One fixtures so far this season. In the Betfred Cup they went out in the group stages following a 3-0 loss to Dundee and a 1-0 win against Forfar last week.
ONE TO WATCH
Rory McAllister is one to watch for the visitors. The veteran striker scored over 150 goals in his nine years with previous side Peterhead and has started the season in fine form with two goals and an assist in his four games so far. Bairns fans will remember the forward from an infamous Challenge Cup game in the 2015/16 season, where he scored all five goals in Peterhead’s 5-3 win at The Falkirk Stadium.
The game is available live on Falkirk TV to season ticket holders as well as to buy on a pay-per-view basis for all supporters.
Pay-per-view is priced at £13.99 and can be purchased here.
