Bairns duo to miss Dumbarton clash through injury

Falkirk will miss Kieran Duffie and striker Bob McHugh with knee injuries as they look to finish a good week's work with a win over Dumbarton.

The Bairns defeated Livingston 2-1 in the Championship last Saturday before knocking Premiership side Partick out of the Scottish League Cup with a 1-0 success on Tuesday.

Manager Peter Houston said: "It required two very strong performances to secure those wins and it will need another strong performance to win this game.

"Dumbarton have started the season well, however after two good wins away from home we will be looking to ensure that we complete a good hat-trick of successes at home."

Dumbarton include new signings Frazer Wright from St Johnstone and ex-Ross County striker Steven Ross, but Andy Graham has left the club.

Darren Miller and Gordon Smith are not travelling as they have been told that they are free to find new clubs as manager Stephen Aitken completes an early-season overhaul.

Aitken said: "After great wins over Hibs and St Mirren it was disappointing to lose to Queen of the South last weekend.

"We lacked a bit of a spark but after having a free week and bringing in a couple of new faces we are in good shape for a good Falkirk side."
