Recent respective form guides

Falkirk's poor home run has seen them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While Bairns have scored 6, a worringly large 13 have been leaked at the other end.

Hearts's away form is none too clever either, with two wins, two draws, and two defeats. The Jambo's's have a narrow positive goal difference over these games, with 8 goals for and 6 against.

Falkirk are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 21 points from 30 matches. Hearts sit in a healthy 2nd in the league, and have picked up 59 points from their 30 games.
