Falkirk striker Myles Hippolyte returns from ban to face St Mirren

Falkirk will welcome Myles Hippolyte back from suspension in their Ladbrokes Championship clash with St Mirren at the Falkirk Stadium.

The Bairns, however, remain without Peter Grant (knee), Conor McGrandles (broken leg) and Kevin O'Hara (ankle), while Paul Watson is a doubt.

"We want to finish second in the table so we have to get back to winning ways starting against St Mirren," said Falkirk manager Peter Houston.

"We dropped two points when Queen of the South came back from two goals down last weekend and we know that should not have happened."

St Mirren defender Jason Naismith is back in training after a knee injury but a lack of game time will see him miss out against the Bairns, while David Clarkson also remains out with a similar problem.

Saints boss Alex Rae said: "We put in a very strong team performance against Hibs last weekend which would have seen us pick up three points had we not lost a late goal. We will need a similar display to do anything against Falkirk as they have had a terrific season.

"We feel that we have made progress in the past few months and this will be a test of that progress."
