Next up for the Bairns is another away match as we travel to Methil to play our rescheduled fixture with East Fife.
Kick off is at 3pm, Saturday 22nd January, Bayview Stadium.
HEAD TO HEAD
Since the formation of East Fife in 1903, we have faced the Methil side competitively on 80 occasions. Across the course of these 80 fixtures, the record has been pretty even with The Bairns winning just 31 times, slightly edging East Fife who have 29 wins to their name.
Only one of those wins have come recently however as the Fife outfit had – prior to January last year – failed to register a win against Falkirk in 25 years.
The last full meeting between the two was back in October as the Fifers came to the Falkirk Stadium. The visitors took the lead after 20 minutes through Kieran Millar, giving the Bairns a hill to climb. Falkirk managed to get the equaliser on the hour mark thanks to a Michael Ruth goal before the Bairns grabbed the win with 15 minutes left to play when Aidan Keena headed home a pinpoint Craig McGuffie cross.
The last time we travelled to Bayview ended after 40 minutes due to heavy fog that obscured the pitch and was rescheduled for this Saturday. The Bairns were one nil up at the time thanks to a brilliantly taken goal by Aidan Keena.
East Fife have struggled this season, only having won three times in the league, and are without a win in their last 10 games in all competitions. Their recent form sees them eight points adrift at the bottom of League One with just 13 points.
The Bairns aren’t on the best run themselves, having only picked up one win in their last seven games. That one win came against Dumbarton when Martin Rennie’s side put six past Dumbarton in a dominating display.
Falkirk currently sit fifth in the standings on 25 points.
