Duffie bolsters Bairns options

Title-chasing Falkirk have defender Kieran Duffie available as they look to complete a clean sweep over visitors Livingston this season.


Duffie returns from injury but the Bairns are, however, without Blair Alston, who is struggling with a calf knock.


Technical director Alex Smith said: "We did well to come back from Raith Rovers with a 4-2 win after falling behind before half-time. That result means everything remains in our hands and that is all we can ask for at this stage of the campaign.


"Livingston are a very capable side but we have done well against them this season and another victory is not beyond us."


Livingston manager John McGlynn looks set to have a full squad to choose from.


Andrew Barrowman's toe injury has eased and player-assistant manager Mark Burchill made a scoring comeback in a reserve game in midweek following an ankle problem that had kept him out for a month.


McGlynn said: "We did not play at all well the last time we were at Falkirk and lost 4-1. In fact, we have not done well against them all season.


"We had to battle and scrap to defeat Cowdenbeath last weekend and we will need those qualities again to get the win that will move us closer to a play-off place."
