Match Preview

Weatherston vying for Falkirk start Falkirk could bring striker David Weatherston back into to their starting line-up against Hamilton. A calf injury meant Weatherston was restricted a substitute's role in the win over Morton last weekend. Everyone else in the Bairns squad is available as they attempt to maintain their fine home form. Technical director Alex Smith said: "We have a great home record this season where we have won five in a row here and we want to make it six. "We bounced back last week against Morton after a couple of disappointing results and we know how determined Hamilton will be to do exactly the same. "They will tighten everything up after losing six goals last Saturday so we will need to be extra creative." Hamilton will hand a debut to Gordon Smith. The striker has completed a loan move from Hearts as the Accies look to end a disappointing run of three defeats in a row. Midfielder James Chambers left the club this week to return to Irish football and manager Billy Reid is again without goalkeeper Tomas Cerny, midfielders Alex Neil and Kyle Wilkie. Reid said: "Losing 6-1 against Dundee last week was obviously disappointing but this is a time for everyone at the club to stick together. "Our confidence is low at the moment but that can change and a good result at Falkirk would certainly help that happen."

Match Report

Bad day for Bairns Falkirk lost ground on league leaders Ross County after being held to a goalless draw against Hamilton. Both sides squandered good chances to claim all three points in a match that was short of quality. Kevin McBride went close for the visitors after 14 minutes with a volley that was well held by goalkeeper Michael McGovern. The home side almost took the lead two minutes into first-half stoppage time through David Weatherston, but his powerful effort was charged down by Martin Canning. Stewart Murdoch squandered the best chance of the match for the Bairns when he headed over the bar following Mark Millar's outswinging corner. And Weatherston fired over four minutes from time to ensure the match ended goalless.
