Match Preview

Flynn misses out for Bairns Ross County are without defender Jonny Flynn through suspension for the home clash with promotion chasing Falkirk. Long-term injury absentees Darren McCormack and Steven Craig also remain sidelined but manager Jimmy Calderwood is determined that his men score the first goal of his reign and pick up their first three point haul after a run of three successive goalless draws. Calderwood said: "I have watched Falkirk recently and they have impressed me greatly especially in an away game at Dunfermline that they should have won. They are a good footballing side and so are we so it should be a good game." "The last game Ross County won was against Falkirk and I would be pleased if the next game they won was also against Falkirk." Falkirk welcome back midfielder Mark Millar from suspension as they look maintain their title challenge at Ross County. However, manager Steven Pressley has several injury concerns and said: "We have doubts over a number of lads, who I do not wish to name, with two of them being extreme doubts." The Bairns boss added: "We have been on a decent run of form but just could not force a goal at Morton in midweek and by the looks of things it is not going to be easy to score up at Ross County. "Jimmy Calderwood has made them a very difficult side to break down but I am sure my players are up for the challenge."

Match Report

Vital victory for Staggies Ross County picked up a vital three points in their battle against relegation with a narrow 2-1 victory over Falkirk at Victoria Park. Richard Brittain gave the home side the lead in the 24th minute with a stunning 25-yard free-kick which flew round the wall before nestling in the bottom corner of the net. Falkirk pulled level in the 37th minute through Mark Stewart's unstoppable strike from the edge of the 18-yard box which flew past Ross keeper Michael McGovern and into the top corner. Just as the game looked to be heading for a draw, Andrew Barrowman slotted home after receiving Michael Gardyne's cross in the 87th minute to hand Ross all three points and lifting them out of the First Division dropzone.
