Next up for The Bairns is a visit to Broadwood as we take on Clyde.
Kick-off is on Saturday the 12th of December at 3.00pm
HEAD TO HEAD
Falkirk last played Clyde at the start of this season in the Group Stages of the Betfred Cup. Aidan Keena opened the scoring before a Callumn Morrison penalty in the second half cancelled out David Goodwillie’s equaliser.
Last season The Bairns struggled against Clyde, with the Bully Wee winning all three meetings between the sides in the previous campaign. This included a dramatic 3-2 win for Clyde only two weeks before the leagues conclusion and two 1-0 losses for Falkirk both home and away.
Falkirk ran out 2-1 winners at home to Peterhead last weekend, extending the unbeaten league run to seven games. First half goals from Blair Alston and Conor Sammon were enough to see The Bairns through what ended up a nervy end to the game thanks to a Lyall Cameron strike with 15 minutes to go.
Results elsewhere could not have went better for The Bairns on Saturday. All three of the remaining top four teams dropped points, with Cove Rangers and Airdrie losing and Partick Thistle’s game against Dumbarton ending goalless. This has left Falkirk four points clear at the top of the table going into this weekend’s game.
Saturday’s hosts have had hot and cold start to the season. An opening day upset against Partick Thistle was followed by three successive losses for Danny Lennon’s team, including a 5-0 loss to Airdrieonians. In their previous league fixture, they ran out 3-2 winners over Montrose thanks to a David Goodwillie hat trick, and the Cumbernauld side will be looking to build on that result when David McCracken and Lee Miller’s table toppers visit on Saturday.
Clyde sit ninth in the Scottish League One table; however, they have only played five games compared to other side’s seven after being unable to play their last two fixtures due to Covid 19 related postponements.
Streaming for Saturday’s game is only available through Clyde FC.
Details will be shared with supporter’s over the coming days.
