Next up for the Bairns, as we return to cinch League One action, is a trip to Firhill where we take on Queen’s Park.
Kick off is at 3pm, Saturday 4th December.
HEAD TO HEAD
The last time Falkirk and Queen’s Park went toe-to-toe was the first meeting between the two in 38 years. Although The Bairns have the better record across the 118 games against Scotland’s oldest club, it was the Glasgow side who took the bragging rights back in August. Usually a high scoring fixture with an average of 3.5 goals a game across all meetings, this season’s first encounter consisted of just one goal; a Simon Murray free-kick that sealed all three points for the visitors.
Up until midway through October, newly promoted Queen’s Park were unbeaten in the league and flying high. Since then it has been a different story with the Spiders failing to secure a win in their last six games in all competitions. The winless streak was kicked off by a narrow defeat to Alloa which saw Euan Henderson score in the 90th and 92nd minute to seal the win in a seven goal thriller that finished four-three to the Wasps. The poor run of form means that Laurie Ellis’ men have slipped down to fourth in the table on 23 points.
Falkirk still sit fifth in the table, just one pot behind this Saturday’s visitors, following a narrow defeat at home to Montrose the weekend before last. The Bairns suffered another defeat last Saturday as they were knocked out of the Scottish Cup by Championship side Raith Rovers. Despite going down to 10 men after just 20 minutes, Rovers managed to score either side of a terrific Callumn Morrison goal to progress to the next round.
