NEXT UP: KELTY HEARTS (H)

Next up for the Bairns is another weekend at home as we take on Kelty Hearts at The Falkirk Stadium

Kick-of is at 3pm, Saturday 9th December.

The Bairns are back at The Falkirk Stadium after last week’s postponed match against Cove Rangers, following heavy snow in Falkirk over the Friday night.

The postponed game against Paul Hartley’s Cove Rangers means that Falkirk remain at 19 games unbeaten following a goalless draw against Montrose last week in what has been a historically difficult match up for The Bairns. Despite Ross MacIver’s early header crashing against the upright and Michael Gardyne’s sweetly struck long range effort coming off Nicky Hogarth’s far post there were no goals in Angus to report over a 90 minutes in which Falkirk had the better of the play but couldn’t make the breakthrough.

Due to last weekend’s postponement The Bairns dropped to second in the table following Hamilton Academical’s 5-0 win over Queen of the South, but Falkirk now have a game in hand that would see them retake top spot. Kelty Hearts also had their home match against Edinburgh City that was scheduled for last Saturday fail a pitch inspection, meaning that Michael Tidser’s side remain in fourth place in the table, occupying the third and final playoff spot.

Kelty come into this fixture following their impressive victory in the Third Round of the Scottish Cup over Hamilton. Following a goalless first half captain Reece Lyon opened the scoring with a thunderous volley before former Bairn Lewis Moore scored a screamer from 25 yards to send the Maroon Machine into a Fourth-Round tie against Ayr United.

Last time out in the league Kelty faced Queen of the South at Palmerston. The hosts took the lead just after the half Jason Thomson’s own goal, but Kelty equalised through Fergus Owen’s header shortly before half time. Player-Manager Michael Tidser then put his side into the lead through a deflected effort on 49 minutes before Reece Lyon sealed the three points with 35 minutes to go.
