Scobie to take a final bow
Long serving Falkirk defender Thomas Scobie looks set to win his fitness race after an ankle problem and take a final bow as a Bairn for the visit of Ayr.
Scobie has been out of action for three weeks and, with his contract due to expire in the summer, there were fears that he would not be able to say goodbye after eight years of service.
David Weatherston is unavailable because of a hamstring injury and he joins Kieran Duffie and Stewart Murdoch on the sidelines.
Falkirk's technical director Alex Smith said: "Thomas has been training this week and it looks like he will make it which would be great for everyone.
"Ayr United have given us problems all season so we want to beat them and see if we can reach second place."
Ayr manager Brian Reid is taking no chances ahead of his side's play-off game next week by listing a young squad.
Eddie Malone is suspended and Reid is again without John Robertson, Michael McGowan, Martyn Campbell, Gareth Wardlaw and Adam Dodd through injury.
Jonathan Tiffoney, Liam Tomsett, Mark Roberts, Michael Moffat and Keighan Parker are all missing as well, with Reid saying: "The first group have been out for a wee while now and the second are all carrying knocks that could see them out for a while if they are aggravated.
"Youngster Steven Hutchison and Jackson Longridge did well when called on last week and they will be given their chance again."
