Match Preview

Graham boosts Bairns Falkirk will be boosted by the return of striker Ally Graham and Steven Kingsley for the home game with Queen of the South. Graham has completed his suspension and Kingsley has recovered from injury, meaning the Bairns are at full strength for the match. Falkirk secured a Ramsdens Cup final place last weekend with victory over Annan, but technical director Alex Smith has warned his players against complacency. He said: "I hope that the 3-0 scoreline against Annan does not fool anybody into thinking it was easy as the players had to work really hard. "It was a tight park and Annan are very good at putting you under pressure by throwing high balls into your box. "Our young lads will need to show that mental and physical toughness again as Queen of the South will come here looking to win through working hard in a very well-organised fashion." Queen of the South striker Kevin Smith is expected to return to the side following suspension. Manager Gus McPherson, whose side are chasing their first away win of the season in the league, has put summer signing Marc McCusker on stand-by for his debut as six players are facing fitness tests. McPherson said: "We have a few players struggling to make this game and if I get four of the six on to the field I'll be pleased. "If we get less than that we will include Marc despite a lack of recent games. "Whatever side we send out, we'll be going out to get our first away win and having Kevin back increases our chances of securing it."

Match Report

Dods breaks Queen`s hearts A dramatic goal from defender Darren Dods seven minutes into injury time gave Falkirk a 1-0 win over Queen of the South after the hosts had missed a penalty moments before. Falkirk's Craig Sibbald sustained a serious injury five minutes from the end after falling awkwardly following an aerial collision and that meant there were a lengthy period of stoppage time. The Bairns had a chance to win the game from the penalty spot three minutes into that added time when Mark Campbell upended striker Farid El Alagui. But Queen of the South goalkeeper Lee Robinson guessed right to deny Mark Millar from the spot-kick and it appeared to have earned his struggling side a point. However, Dods headed Millar's corner into the net with virtually the last touch of the game to snatch victory.
