Falkirk prepare to entertain Hamilton Academical at The Falkirk Stadium on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Bairns are clearly on top, having won 43 and lost only 14 of the 70 games.
The most recent encounter between these two sides at The Falkirk Stadium was less than a year ago, in February 2009, with Hamilton Ac. inflicting a narrow 1-2 defeat upon the Bairns in a Scottish Premier match.

Recent respective form guides
Falkirk need to improve on their recent home record of just 3 draws from the previous six. While Bairns have scored 5, a worringly large 13 have been leaked at the other end.
Hamilton Ac.'s away form is none too clever either, accumulating just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While the Accies have hit 6 goals, 12 have hit the back of the wrong net.
Falkirk find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 11 games have yielded only 5 points. Hamilton Ac. are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 9 points from 11 matches.

FootyMad's prediction ...
Its been a distinctly poor show from Falkirk at home in recent games, and, though I cannot see a run starting here, I do think the Bairns will at least gain a draw. No-score draw
|Falkirk||Failed to win in previous 6 home matches.|
