We prepare to take on Kelty Hearts for the third time this season as we look to continue our winning ways.
Our previous two meetings with Kelty Hearts haven’t gone to plan, with the Fife side taking all three points on both occasions. The last time out was a close game at The Falkirk Stadium in October when the visitors edged the win in a five goal game. Ghanaian striker Alfredo Agyeman stunned The Bairns with two quick-fire goals in the 6th and 8th minute. Juan Alegria pulled one back but Darren Lyon scored just 10 minutes later to re-extend Kelty’s lead to two goals. Rumarn Burrell was on hand to pull another goal back for Falkirk but the much needed third goal never came and the visitors took the win.
Kelty Hearts have struggled in recent weeks, having not won a game in three in all competitions. John Potter’s side exited the SPFL Trust Trophy this month before drawing back to back matches in the league, a 1-1 draw with Airdrieonians and a 3-3 thriller against Montrose at Links Park on Saturday. Their form sees them occupying eighth in the table with 29 points.
The Bairns are flying high at the moment following a massive win in the capital, making it five wins in a row in all competitions for John McGlynn’s side. Goals from Gary Oliver and Callumn Morrison were enough to see off FC Edinburgh at Meadowbank on Saturday despite a late goal from Edinburgh number nine Ouzy See.
Falkirk remain in second on 41 points, three ahead of FC Edinburgh with two games in hand and five behind Dunfermline.
