Match Preview

Holt banned for QoS Queen of the South will be missing suspended youngster Kevin Holt when they look to gain revenge over visitors Falkirk for a late defeat when they last met back in October. Everyone else in the Palmerston Park squad is available to manger Gus McPherson. He said: "We lost a goal in the 97th minute the last time we played. It was a cruel way to lose a game as it came from a corner after our goalkeeper had just saved a penalty. "They enjoyed plenty of possession but we had kept their chances to a minimum and it would be great to do that again but have a more attacking threat ourselves this time. We have to start the game well if we are to do anything." Falkirk will give top goalscorer Farid El Alagui a late fitness test as they look to pick up only their second away win of the season. The Moroccan striker was hurt during the goalless draw at home to Hamilton last week. Technical director Alex Smith said: "Farid has only done a limited amount of training but fingers crossed he will make it. "We could not prise open the Accies defence last week despite a lot of effort and I would imagine that Gus McPherson will have his side's defence just as well organised as Hamilton's so it will be a close game. "It took until injury time to win it last time and we may need to be as patient again."

Match Report

Falkirk run riot Falkirk scored four times in 13 minutes to see off Queen of the South with a convincing 5-1 victory. The hosts took the lead when Scott McLaughlin found the bottom corner of the net from 12 yards out but Craig Sibbald brought Falkirk level before half-time with a curling effort. Farid El Alagui put the visitors ahead after Queen of the South had failed to clear a corner and Sibbald scored from the edge of the box again moments later to extend their lead. Kallum Higginbotham added a fourth, drilling home after being put through by El Alagui. And El Alagui completed the rout four minutes from time when he got his second goal of the game. David Weatherston slotted his strike partner in and he kept his composure to blast the ball in.
