Match Preview

Bairns unchanged for Doonhamers clash Falkirk are expected to name an unchanged squad for the visit of a Queen of the South side they have beaten twice already this season. Only striker Tam McManus is unavailable to manager Steven Pressley as he struggles to overcome injury. The Bairns boss is glad to be back in the thick of games, saying: "After seven weeks of hardly playing we played in midweek and now have a game on Saturday and again next midweek. "It is great to have the players back on the pitch playing games. "This will be a tough one as Queens are a very good side that are well organised by Kenny Brannigan and like to play good football. They have good strikers so we need to be on our guard throughout." Queen of the South have been left with just 12 players with first-team experience after injuries to defender David Lilley and midfielder Rocco Quinn. The Doonhamers have 10 outfield players available and now have only two goalkeepers as Lee Robinson has been released following the expiration of his contract. Manager Kenny Brannigan said: "It is a terrible situation but we are not getting the crowds to sustain a bigger squad, and when you get a couple of injuries you are left really struggling. "I am hoping the boys rise out of this adversity to put on a real battling performance as that is what will be needed." Untried youngsters from the Dumfries club`s youth set-up will fill spare places on the substitute bench.

Match Report

Johnston double downs Falkirk A brace from Allan Johnston helped Queen of the South to a 3-0 victory over Falkirk. Two from Johnston and another from Colin McMenamin gave the visitors a commanding half-time advantage and one the Bairns never recovered from. The visitors took the lead in the 26th minute when McMenamin headed down for Johnston to finish from inside the area. Provider McMenamin then turned goalscorer after 39 minutes when his 20-yard strike rocketed in to the top left-hand corner of the net. Johnston got his second of the game a minute before the interval when he got on the end of an outswinging corner from William McLaren. The win sees Queen of the South move to within three points of their opponents with a game in hand.
