Match Preview

Griffiths back from ban Dundee welcome back sought after striker Leigh Griffiths from suspension to their squad for the visit of Falkirk. Griffiths is back and looks set to take the place of Sean Higgins, who drops out as the result of a ban. Following the application of their 25-point penalty last weekend a win for the Dark Blues could see them move to within a point of second-bottom Stirling Albion. Dens Park boss Barry Smith is looking for his men to keep battling away in the manner he has grown accustomed to. Smith said: "The players have battled for everything since I took over in October and they showed that again last week against Dunfermline when we had only the 10 men. We will need that against Falkirk as well." Falkirk striker Mark Stewart returns to the squad. Stewart is back in but the game has came too soon for fellow front man Tam McManus, who is battling his way back following knee surgery. The Bairns lost heavily to Queen of the South last week and crashed out of the Scottish Cup to Partick Thistle in midweek. Manager Steven Pressley said: "It has not been the best of weeks and of course it was really disappointing to go out of the Cup but the boys have shown in training how determined they are to put things right. "The goals we lost to Queen of the South were poor but we performed a lot better against Partick and if we build on that we will do fine at Dens Park."

Match Report

Forsyth strike proves decisive An early Craig Forsyth goal proved enough for Dundee to claim a 1-0 win over 10-man Falkirk in an ill-disciplined match. The midfielder headed the only goal from close range in the eighth minute after connecting with Gary Irvine`s cross. It came after the home side, who are currently bottom of Scottish Division One, peppered Falkirk`s goal in the opening minutes. Marc Twaddle cleared Craig McKeown`s header before Falkirk `keeper Robert Olejnik saved Forsyth`s shot in the fourth minute. Forsyth then came close again five minutes before the break but failed to double the score as his header was wide. There were seven yellow cards in the game, six for the visitors, with Falkirk`s Carl Finnegan seeing red in the 68th minute for his second bookable offence after he handled the ball. The win sees Dundee close the gap with Stirling at the bottom of the table to one point.
