Next up- Falkirk

Last updated : 26 January 2010 By Firparkcorner

Because while Falkirk were truly awful, it is doubtful they can possibly play quite so badly again. Certainly the manager will be demanding a reaction and with Jim Jefferies currently sitting in his pants watching Sky Sports News all day, Eddie May will be well aware that he is entering the last chance saloon.

Last time in Falkirk

The fact remains that while we are not very good, Falkirk are considerably worse. We must be looking for the three points and Craig Brown will also be determined to claim the victory which will all but hand him a permanent deal at Fir Park.

If we play like we did against St Mirren then we will probably get that win - a repeat of solid defence and a decent amount of possession will inevitably lead to a defensive error from Falkirk which should gift us the points. We'll need to be aware of the aerial threat posed by Showunmi, though he did not seem particularly keen to use his height against United, while Compton looked a bit livelier than the rest after coming on as a substitute. It will be interesting to see how their captain, Darren Barr, reacts following his pre-contract agreement with Hearts.

We may well be without Jutkiewicz, which is a big blow but Murphy and Sutton will surely be in confident mood and if they click, we can go home happy. We rarely get the chance to feel that we are building momentum and going in the right direction so let's enjoy it when we can. A 2-1 victory here could well see us checking the gap between ourselves and the European places once more…
