Duffie and Dick to miss out for Falkirk

Falkirk's Kieran Duffie misses out against Queen of the South with a knee injury, while Liam Dick is absent due to an ankle problem.

Bairns boss Peter Houston is looking for a huge improvement from his side after Tuesday night's 7-0 defeat to Ross County in the Scottish League Cup.

Houston said: "The biggest disappointment was the lack of desire to stop County scoring. They are a good side who played well but we are much better than that.

"We are unbeaten in the league and have the chance to go seven points clear of a side that will be chasing a play-off place and I want us to take it."

Queen of the South are without the attacking threat of Iain Russell for a second game running due to a hamstring injury, with Callum Tapping (thigh) and Dale Hilson (foot) also ruled out.

Palmerston manager James Fowler was in the crowd at Dingwall on Tuesday as Falkirk struggled, but he is not expecting a similar performance from Houston's side.

Fowler said: "It was a bit of an unusual game as Liam Boyce scored a really quick hat-trick and every cross resulted in a goal.

"Falkirk are a much better side than that result showed and they will be extremely determined to put that right against us."
