Falkirk missing defensive duo

Falkirk are without defensive duo Aaron Muirhead and Peter Grant at home to Dundee United.

The pair are both suffering from knee injuries and goalkeeper Deniz Mehmet is also struggling with a dead leg.

Bairns boss Peter Houston, who led Dundee United to Scottish Cup glory in 2010, said: "We had a good win at Raith last weekend, but for the first half-hour they were probably the better side.

"We need to start much better in this game as United are also looking to build some momentum after a sluggish start in the league."

Dundee United are without the suspended Paul Dixon.

The defender was sent off in last weekend's 3-1 win at Dunfermline which saw United goalkeeper Cammy Bell save three first-half penalties.

"It was a very good victory when you consider we had all those penalties given against us and Paul was sent off," United manager Ray McKinnon said.

"Falkirk were great last season and they are turning this season around after a disappointing start, so we will need to play well to get anything."
