Falkirk travel to take on Cowdenbeath at Central Park on Tuesday evening, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Bairns will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them ending up on the losing side in more than half of the games played between the two.

The last time the two teams met at Cowdenbeath was just over four years ago, in August 2006, where Falkirk annihilated the Bairns 0-5 in a Scottish League Cup match.
