Match Preview

Old Firm youngsters in line for debuts On-loan Rangers youngster Ross Perry is added to the Falkirk squad to face Morton. Striker Tam McManus has been included in manager Steven Pressley's provisional squad after five months out with a knee injury. However, the best he can hope for is a place on the bench due to a lack of recent match practice. Meanwhile, defender Brian McLean is suspended. "We have been itching for a game ever since the final whistle went at Raith Rovers two weeks ago," said Pressley. "That was a great result and a great performance and one that we really needed. I am looking for us to build on against Morton." Morton include on-loan Celtic youngster Sean Fitzharris. However, experienced midfielder Darren Young remains a doubt as the Greenock side look to put a disappointing display against Inverness in the Scottish Cup behind them. Manager Allan Moore said: "We were poor last weekend and were soundly beaten 4-1. "We simply never got going and Falkirk will reckon that a win over us and they will be setting up a three horse title race. "But we played well there earlier in the season and were unlucky to be beaten. Our league form has been good of late so we have nothing to fear. "The same type of performance as we put in last September, however with a different result this time, would be very welcome."

Match Report

Late Stewart strike sinks Morton Mark Stewart's goal nine minutes from time helped 10-man Falkirk secure a 1-0 home win over nine-man Morton. Stewart fired home from six yards after a Jack Compton corner had created havoc in the Morton defence. Morton's best chance came after 43 minutes, Falkirk goalkeeper Robert Olejnik doing well to tip Allan Jenkins' effort round the post. The home side's Pedro Moutinho hit a post after 50 minutes before Morton were reduced to 10 men 17 minutes from time, Carlo Monti shown a straight red for a challenge on Compton. The Ton were then two men light four minutes later when Michael Tidser was sent off for a second booking before Falkirk's Mark Millar was also shown a second yellow on 90 minutes.
