Next up for Falkirk is a trip up north to Balmoor, where we take on Peterhead in cinch League One action.
Kick off is at 3pm, Saturday 23rd October.
HEAD TO HEAD
Given that it was the late 1800s when both teams were formed, it may come as a surprise that Falkirk and Peterhead have only met in competitive action 12 times.
The majority of those meetings have taken place over the last three seasons since both sides have been competing in League One together since 2019. In this time The Bairns and The Blue Toon have battled it out seven times, with most of the bragging rights going to Falkirk who have won 5 of those seven matches and lost just one.
Peterhead’s form as been a bit of a mixed bag this season. Following a win against Alloa on the opening weekend, Jim McInally’s men went on to lose their next four league games. Their last five fixtures have been a bit of a rollercoaster ride, winning three and losing two, albeit to table toppers Cove Rangers and Queen’s Park, and scoring 14 goals in the process. Peterhead will be confident ahead of this fixture, coming off the back of a four-two win over Alloa and a five-nil thrashing of Dumbarton.
The Blue Toon currently sit seventh in the league table, just two points behind Falkirk.
After a poor run of results, Falkirk looked to have started a turnaround with a crucial win against East Fife two weeks ago. After a short break, that turnaround was halted by visitors Airdrieonians who sought revenge for The Bairns’ gutsy win at the Penny Cars Stadium back in August.
The Diamonds put three unanswered goals past a despairing Falkirk at The Falkirk Stadium to send Paul Sheerin’s men down to fifth in the table with only one win in seven. The Bairns currently sit six points from the top with 14.
