Match Preview

Weatherston set for Bairns bow Falkirk will include their new signing, former Queen of the South striker David Weatherston, in their squad for the visit of Partick Thistle. However, Bairns manager Steven Pressley is without Darren Dods and Mark Millar through suspension while midfielder Craig Sibbald is set to be absent through injury. Stephen Kingsley will need to pass a fitness test to be involved but Blair Alston is back in full training and is in Pressley's plans. Assistant manager Lee Bullen said: "It is always an intriguing contest when a former player comes back to a club as a manager and I am sure Jackie McNamara will be extra determined to do well here. "Thistle will be tough opponents as they are sore about losing out to late penalties in their last two games." Partick will give Alan Archibald and Willie Kinniburgh fitness tests. The central defenders were ruled out against Hamilton in midweek with injuries. Striker Kris Doolan is expected to return to the starting line-up after shaking off the knock that saw him relegated to the bench as the Jags exited the Ramsdens Cup to a late penalty. Firhill manager Jackie McNamara said: "We have not had any luck at all recently with late penalty decisions and that has been extremely frustrating. We can help ourselves all the same by being more positive when we have the ball. "Falkirk will be, like us, looking to get their first points after losing to Raith last weekend."

Match Report

Doolan left rueing miss A missed penalty from Partick's Kris Doolan proved crucial as they lost 2-1 at Falkirk. The home side took the lead after eight minutes through Farid El Alagui, who collected Stewart Murdoch's pass to slot home from close range. But Doolan equalised for Partick 10 minutes before the break with an unstoppable 25-yard strike into the bottom corner. Falkirk restored their lead five minutes after the restart when Thomas Scobbie's cross was powerfully headed home by Kallum Higginbotham. Partick should have equalised from the spot when Michael McGovern fouled Thomas Stewart, but Doolan skewed his wide. The away side came agonisingly close three minutes later, but Aaron Sinclair's header hit the bar and Falkirk managed to hold on.
