Match Preview

Trio banned for Morton clash Falkirk have three players suspended for the visit of Morton. Goalkeeper Michael McGovern and striker Farid El Alagui are both missing after being red-carded against Ross County on Saturday, with Kieran Duffie also absent as he is serving the second of a two-game ban. Darren Dods is available after a one-match suspension, with the Bairns putting their trust in Under-19 goalkeeper Graham Bowman in McGovern's absence. Steven Pressley's side have slipped 15 points off the pace at the top of First Division, however he remains positive. "No-one really expected a title challenge from us but we have put one in and have plenty to be excited about," he said. "We have eight games left and we want play to do well in them all." Morton are without the suspended Peter Weatherson. Weatherson was dismissed against Dundee at the weekend and will play no part as they look to improve on a record of only one win in 10 games that has seen them drop down the table. Midfielder Derek Young is a doubt with a head knock, Paul di Giacomo could miss out again with a back problem and captain Stuart McCaffrey remains out with a heel injury to add to manager Allan Moore's woes. Moore said: "Scoring first is key in this division and we need to start doing that. "We are creating a lot of chances but not taking them. We need to pick ourselves up after losing to Dundee at the weekend and look to get the three points."
