Match Preview

Fulton drafted in for Millar Falkirk have midfield ace Mark Millar banned for their home clash with Queen of the South with youngster Jay Fulton expected to be given his role. Striker David Weatherston is in line to return after missing the Bairns' last two games with manager Steven Pressley also considering other changes following a demanding schedule of games. Technical director Alex Smith said: "We played well in midweek against Dundee and it was disappointing to lose a late goal but we scored one ourselves the last time Queen's were here so we cannot complain too much about it. "We also won 5-1 down at their place but they have improved a lot since then under the guidance of a SPL management team in Gus McPherson and Andy Millen." Queen of the South are missing only long term injured strikers Kevin Smith and Marc McCusker as they look to take their first points of the season from their hosts. The Dumfries men lost a late goal to be denied a win over Dundee last weekend and that has happened too often for manager Gus McPherson. "It was great to play so well against a team chasing promotion like Dundee but again we let ourselves down by losing a late goal," he said. "It is something we have been guilty of a lot this season and that includes the 97th minute of the last game we played at Falkirk. It goes without saying that the players will need to concentrate until the final whistle in this game."

Match Report

Gibson inspires Falkirk triumph Falkirk boosted their chances of promotion from the First Division with a comfortable 3-0 win over bottom club Queen of the South. Goals from Farid El Alagui, William Gibson and Darren Dods moved the home side to level on points with Ross County, although the current league leaders currently have three games in hand. The home side took the lead in the 35th minute when El Alagui slammed home from six yards following Gibson's inswinging corner. And provider Gibson turned goalscorer just a minute later to double his side's advantage, neatly converting from 12 yards. The visitors created little throughout the match and Falkirk sealed the win with 11 minutes remaining when defender Dods slotted in from close-range following another delivery from Gibson.
