We take on Dunfermline for the third time this season as we look to start the new year on a high.
The last meeting between the two sides ended in victory for Dunfermline at The Falkirk Stadium. A second half goal from Craig Wighton was enough to secure the three points for Monday’s hosts in a tightly fought encounter.
Dunfermline currently top the cinch League One table following an impressive first half of the season that has seen them lose only once over the first 18 games. Christmas Eve saw a dramatic comeback for James McPake’s side, as they recovered from Alfredo Agyeman’s goal on the hour mark thanks to an own goal and a Lewis McCann winner.
Falkirk are currently third in the league following last Friday’s win over Queen of the South, who now sit in seventh spot. The Bairns can go level with second place FC Edinburgh with a win on Monday, if the Citizens lose to Airdrieonians. Both Falkirk and Dunfermline have a game in hand over the Edinburgh side.
