Match Preview

El Alagui doubt for Bairns Falkirk's top goalscorer Farid El Alagui is a doubt with a hip injury for the meeting between the second and third-placed sides in the First Division when Dundee visit the Falkirk Stadium. The Moroccan was injured in Saturday's 1-0 win at Hamilton Accies, however Kieran Duffie, who suffered a nose injury in the same game, is expected to be available. Steven Pressley's side looked jaded in Saturday's success and the Bairns manager is taking things easy for the contest with the Dens Park men. He said: "I cannot be too harsh on the players as they have given us so much and it caught up with them a bit. "We have given them time off to recover and have plenty of energy to face a good Dundee side." Dundee winger Nicky Riley is a doubt for his side's visit to Falkirk where a win would put Barry Smith's side into second spot. A combination of a hamstring injury and illness kept Riley out of the 1-1 draw with Queen of the South on Saturday and Smith will not play the former Celtic player unless he is fully ready. The Dark Blues are hoping the three players that picked up head knocks at Palmerston, Rhys Weston, Neil McGregor and Jake Hyde, will all be declared fit for this one. Smith said: "This is a big game and we will be looking for the three points. We have lost by the one goal at their place twice this season and it would be great to turn that around."

Match Report

Finnigan leaves it late Substitute Carl Finnigan netted a late equaliser to earn Dundee a 1-1 draw at Falkirk. Falkirk striker Farid El Alagui had a header blocked after five minutes before scoring his 23rd goal of the season just before the half-hour mark when he converted from close range. Jamie McCluskey and Steven Milne both fired over from distance as Dundee searched for an equaliser. After the break, Stewart Murdoch failed to test Rab Douglas in the Dark Blues goal while, at the other end, an excellent block from Michael McGovern prevented Finnigan from drawing Dundee level from six yards. However, the visitors did claw their way back into the match when Finnigan eventually found the net from 12 yards three minutes from time to secure their fourth successive league draw.
