Match Preview

Bairns without Khalis Falkirk will again be missing defender Mehdi Khalis through injury as they look to haul themselves back into the title race by ending visitors` Dundee's 20-game unbeaten run. A flu bug had manager Steven Pressley concerned about the availability of a couple of members of his first-team squad earlier in the week. However, all of his men have returned to full training for a game that is shaping up as a must-win for the Bairns. Pressley said: "Last Saturday's defeat from Dunfermline was very disappointing and we have been made to wait a few days longer to bounce back after the Thistle game was postponed in midweek. "Dundee are a team in fine form but it is a game I am looking for my team to win." Dundee have been dealt a blow with striker Sean Higgins requiring to undergo knee surgery that has ruled him out for the rest of the season. Jonny Stewart has returned to Hearts at the end of his loan period, Neil McCann is no longer available as he has played his three games as a trialist and fellow trialist Craig Robertson is required by Junior side Lochee United. Boss Barry Smith said: "We are really short of bodies but one thing we are not short of is spirit and I am sure the boys in the dressing room will give it their all. "Falkirk need the points for their promotion push but we need them just as much as they do."

Match Report

Forsyth snatches point for Dark Blues Craig Forsyth netted a late equaliser as Dundee extended their unbeaten run to 21 league games with a 2-2 draw against Falkirk. The home side opened the scoring after 27 minutes when Marc Twaddle`s cushioned header found Tom McManus and he fired into the top corner from 12 yards. Carl Finnigan almost made it 2-0 but his 12-yard shot was superbly stopped by Rab Douglas, before Falkirk looked to be on their way to ending Dundee`s impressive run when Mark Stewart doubled their advantage in the 64th minute, finding the bottom corner from 12 yards. Their two-goal lead lasted only a minute, though, as Gary Irvine converted Nicholas Riley`s cross from 12 yards. And Dundee salvaged a point six minutes from time when Forsyth scored from 12 yards after more good work from the impressive Riley.
