Match Preview

Kingsley banned for Falkirk Falkirk youngster Stephen Kingsley is banned for the visit of Ross County. On-loan Rangers youngster Ross Perry is struggling with a knock with manager Steven Pressley unlikely to make many chances to his squad that have hit form recently. Pressley said: "We have won four games in a row and had only 1 defeat in 10 so we are doing well just now and do not want the season to end. "I watched Ross County during the week and am still of the opinion that they are a far better side than their league position would suggest. "They will want a win and so are we so it should be an excellent game." Ross County hope that midfielder Paul Lawson will be available after injury. Defender Darran McCormack remains out with County boss Jimmy Calderwood looking for his men to build on their midweek win over Queen of the South and move closer to safety. Calderwood said: "We battled for everything and played a lot of good football on Tuesday night but we missed some amount of chances. "It will be a very difficult game against Falkirk but we have to take something as I am working on the basis that Cowdenbeath will beat Stirling Albion. "It would be great to win this one to put things to bed before Jimmy Nicholl's side come up to our place in the last game of the season."

Match Report

Flynn hands County lifeline Jonathan Flynn's last minute strike gave Ross County a 1-0 win at third-placed Falkirk to almost guarantee their place in Division One. Flynn's strike leaves County three points clear of second-bottom Cowdenbeath, who have a worse goal difference, with a game to go. Tom McManus had the first chance of the game for Falkirk but his overhead kick flew over the bar from 12 yards. Midfielders Iain Vigurs and Michael Gardyne were denied by Falkirk goalkeeper Robert Olejnik as County looked for an opener while Flynn failed to direct his header on target from 12 yards after good work from Vigurs. County, who did all the running, pushed hard for a winner but Olejnik and defender Thomas Scobbie brilliantly denied Andrew Barrowman from six yards. But Flynn secured the points in injury time when he headed in Steven Milne's cross.
