NEXT UP: KELTY HEARTS (A)

Next up for the Bairns is a trip to Fife as we take on Kelty Hearts.

Kick-off is at 3pm, Saturday 24th February.

The squad are straight back into action this Saturday following two massive wins in cinch League 1.

Last Saturday, Falkirk went 11 points clear at the top of the table when they beat title rivals Hamilton Academical at the Falkirk Stadium. It was a huge game but that didn’t phase the team, who put in arguably the best first-half display of the season, scoring three times in the opening 27 minutes. The visitors came back into the game thanks to an Ahkeem Rose brace but it wasn’t enough and the Bairns took all three points.

It was then a quick turnaround to Tuesday night’s rearranged fixture against Montrose. It was a chance for Falkirk to extend their lead at the top of the table to 14 points, with the fixture being a game in hand. It was another big game and, again, Falkirk came out the traps flying, taking the lead after five minutes when Ethan Ross’ cross deflected off Matheus Machado and into the Montrose goal. Aidan Nesbitt then doubled the lead 15 minutes later when he latched on to Sean Mackie’s cross at the near post. Gary Oliver then wrapped up the scoring in the 93rd minute, receiving the ball from Brad Spencer on the counter, cutting inside from the left and curling the ball past the keeper.

Kelty Hearts haven’t been in the best of form recently, having picked up just two wins in their last 10 league games, those two wins both coming against bottom side Edinburgh City. Last weekend Kelty travelled to Montrose looking to make it two wins in a row. Things didn’t quite go as planned though, with Montrose taking the lead inside the opening minute. The home side then doubled their lead in the 25th minute, giving Kelty a mountain to climb.

They certainly made a good attempt at climbing that mountain, managing to level the scores thanks to a four minute Craig Johnston brace. The two quick-fire goals gave Kelty hope, but that hope was dashed in the 77th minute when Graham Webster put Montrose back in front. Kane Hester then secured the three points for Montrose in the 95th minute.

Kelty Hearts currently occupy sixth place in the league standings with 31 points.
