Match Preview

Perry to face Raith Falkirk welcome back on-loan Rangers man Ross Perry to their squad when they host leaders Raith Rovers. Perry will return from Scotland under-21 duty to be available but defender Mehdi Khalis is away on international duty with the Moroccan under-23 side. Manager Steven Pressley is delighted to be back in the title race following their midweek success at Queen of the South. Pressley said: "Winning in midweek has set us up for this huge game very nicely. "We won the last game between ourselves and Raith Rovers and a repeat of that would be fantastic and really start firing things up for a push on the title by us by winning our games in hand." First Division leaders Raith Rovers will be without midfielder Iain Williamson. Williamson has been out for the last few weeks with a foot injury and manager John McGlynn is also sweating over the fitness of Laurie Ellis and Stephen Simmons. McGlynn said: "Both players have progressed closer to fitness as the week has gone on but they will be touch and go. "This is a really important game and I may just have to take a gamble on them." McGlynn is prepared for Falkirk to come out all guns blazing as he said: "They will see this game as virtually their last chance to be involved at the end of the season. "If we win we create a 15-point gap whereas if they win they will be targeting winning their three games in hand to draw level."

Match Report

Stewart rocks Rovers Mark Stewart scored twice as Falkirk condemned Division One leaders Raith to only their second league loss away from home this season with a 2-1 triumph. Raith had the better of the first-half chances at the Falkirk Stadium but Craig Wilson`s header and Gregory Tade`s long-distance shot were off target. The home side took the lead against the run of play seven minutes before the break when Stewart fired past Rovers keeper Andrew McNeil from inside the area. Their lead lasted until the 74th minute when top scorer John Baird netted his 13th of the season for John McGlynn`s men from 12 yards. Five minutes later, Stewart netted his and Falkirk's second after collecting Jack Compton`s pass on the right and shooting from inside the area. Steven Pressley`s men had further chances to score and just before the final whistle substitute Ryan Flynn hit the post.
