Next up for the Bairns is a return to The Falkirk Stadium as we host Montrose.

Kick off is at 3pm this Saturday.


Since first meeting in a friendly in 1904, Falkirk and Montrose have only gone toe-to-toe against each other 38 times. In more recent times, and previous to both being in League One, the two sides haven’t faced each other too regularly, with the four matches prior to a League Cup meeting in 2018 being spread out across 12 years. 

It is a fixture that has never been a dull affair, more often than not producing a lot of goals. Out of the 38 meetings, Falkirk have been victorious in 25 and have lost just 6, scoring 85 goals in the process.

Since the start of the 2019 season, a league campaign that saw the two sides in the same league for the first time since they were both in the Scottish First Division in 1986, Montrose have only managed one win over the Bairns in six attempts and it came towards the tail end of last season during the last meeting between the two.

The last meeting between the two teams was a rollercoaster ride of a game at Links Park. Montrose went two-nil up, giving The Bairns a mountain to climb, a task the boys in Navy Blue took head on. Goals from Aidan Keena and Michael Ruth rescued a point towards the end of a very frustrating afternoon.


Similarly to Falkirk, Stewart Petrie’s men have had an inconsistent season so far. The Gable Endies have only managed two wins in their previous ten games in all competitions, those wins coming against bottom two teams Clyde and East Fife.

They currently sit fourth in the table, level on points with Falkirk on 22.

Paul Sheerin’s men have picked up a little bit of form following a frustrating run of results. With just one loss in six and two comprehensive wins in their last two outings, it seems they may have finally turned a corner. The Bairns thought they had all but won against semi-local Alloa when Callumn Morrison put the home side one nil up from the penalty spot upon his long awaited return from injury, however, the visitors managed to rescue a point, scoring just two minutes later. 

Despite such an upsetting end to that game, Falkirk travelled to Dumbarton on Saturday and put in a dominant display. Fielding the same team as the previous few weeks, The Bairns put three past a Dumbarton side featuring a number of former Bairns. Goals from Michael Ruth, Aidan Nesbitt and Charlie Telfer sealed the three points for Falkirk.

Despite the result, events elsewhere mean that Falkirk still sit fifth in the table, albeit only 3 points off second placed Cove Rangers and four points off league leaders Airdrieonians.
