Grant misses out for Bairns

Long-term absentee Thomas Grant is the only Falkirk player unavailable to manager Gary Holt as his side take on Hamilton in the first leg of the play-off semi-final.


The Bairns qualified for this stage by knocking Queen of the South out in extra time on Saturday and technical director Alex Smith is delighted they are back in action so quickly.


Smith said: "We have had two hard games while Hamilton have been waiting to play us and that is no bad thing. We have momentum now and hopefully that will help us get the semi-final off to a great start by winning this first leg."


Hamilton play for the first time since their 10-2 mauling of Morton and both Martin Canning and Darian MacKinnon are available after suspension with Stephen Hendrie also included after an ankle injury.


Player-manager Alex Neil is banned for a game he believes will be won by the side that copes best with the pressure.


Neil said: "Since the league season finished Falkirk have played a couple of games whereas we have worked hard in training. I do not think either approach will determine anything in this game as this comes down to who handles the pressure of it.


"I am obviously hoping that will be Hamilton."
