Match Preview

Tena sits out

Livingston will be without defender Jesus Garcia Tena through suspension when they host Falkirk.

Keaghan Jacobs remains out after knee surgery and Ross Docherty is not yet ready after a groin problem as caretaker boss Richie Burke looks to make it three wins in a row since he took control following the sacking of Gareth Evans.

Burke said: "The boys have done great for me and it would be great to get another three points and keep hold of third place.

"Our worst performance of the season came against Falkirk last month when we lost 2-0 and it would be good to make up for it. We played really well at Raith last week and I will gladly accept a repeat of that."

Falkirk welcome back defenders Darren Dods and Jonny Flynn from suspension when they travel to Livingston.

The Bairns have a doubt over Lewis Small, who has a cut eye, but Craig Sibbald is available.

Technical director Alex Smith is still in charge following manager Steven Pressley's move to Coventry.

Smith said: "We had won four games in a row before drawing with Raith and losing to Morton so it would be great to pick up another three points from our game at Livingston.

"The games between us this season have all been good games and our recent win over Livingston was our best display of the season. A repeat of that would be a very good day's work."
