Next up for The Bairns is a Boxing Day clash against Partick Thistle.
Kick-off is Saturday the 26th of December at 12.00pm.
HEAD TO HEAD
The last meeting between the sides earlier this season ended with a point apiece. It only took 12 minutes for Falkirk to be rewarded for their early intensity and desire to get forward. The ball was played to Callumn Morrison who tried a shot that took a wicked deflection off the defender and looped into the back of the net. Going one goal down urged Partick on to try and get an equaliser, which they would have got two minutes later were it not for a heroic save from goalkeeper keeper PJ Morrison. Williamson broke into the box and was brought down, but Graham’s penalty was denied by Morrison.
Thistle came out from the interval the brighter and got the equaliser they had been pushing for in the 65th minute. The ball was headed back across goal from a Spittal cross and Joe Cardle headed it into the back of the net. Partick’s second came just two minutes later as Cardle drove to the by-line and played the ball across the box for Brian Graham who tapped in to make it 2-1 to the hosts. After piling on the pressure for a big chunk of the second half, Falkirk left it late to get their equaliser. Two substitutes combined as Conor Sammon did well to hold the ball up and played it across to Charlie Telfer who hit a brilliant first-time finish past the keeper. The last meetings before this between the sides took place in the Scottish Championship during the 2018/19 season. The Jags won the first of these encounters with the other three fixtures ending in one all draws.
The Bairns sit top of the Scottish League One table. Despite a disappointing result against Airdrieonians last Sunday Falkirk have won four out of their last five games and are four points clear of nearest challengers Montrose.
Saturday’s visitors have had mixed form in the league but still sit in third place, six points behind Falkirk. They were also defeated in their last match, losing out by a goal to nil at home to Peterhead. Partick have drawn one, lost one and won three of their last five games.
