We prepare to take on FC Edinburgh for the third time this season as we look to go three points ahead of them in the league standings.
So far this season John McGlynn’s Bairns have recored two wins out of two against Edinburgh, scoring five goals in the process. The last meeting between the two sides came back in November when Falkirk ran out 2-0 winners at The Falkirk Stadium, scoring two special goals. The first came when Ola Lawal received the ball in the middle of the park, beat his man with a brilliant piece of skill and fired a shot low into the bottom corner from outside the box. The second came from a more unlikely source, when Leon McCann decided to turn into Lionel Messi to score his first professional goal, which won the SPFL Goal of the Month award. The left back found him self out wide with his back to goal and very little chance of scoring. Despite the odds, he turned his man, cut inside and beat two more defenders before firing past Robbie Mutch in the Edinburgh net.
FC Edinburgh were on a decent run of form at the turn of the year and were five games unbeaten in the league before they hosted Dunfermline at Meadowbank at the beginning of January. Since then Alan Maybury’s side have lost two consecutive matches, falling to defeat away to Alloa the week after losing to Dunfermline. The drop in form means Edinburgh now sit third in the league table, level on points with Falkirk who have two games in hand over Edinburgh.
The Bairns have won their last three league matches in a row and a Scottish Cup win against Alloa at the weekend made it four in a row in all competitions. A win on Saturday will see Falkirk move three points ahead of Edinburgh to 41, keeping pressure on Dunfermline.
