Falkirk face a trip to Heart of Midlothian at Tynecastle Stadium on Saturday afternoon, and have come away with little in previous meetings, having been beaten a depressing 57 out of 84 times.
The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in January 2007, the Jambo's carving out a narrow 1 - 0 victory in a Scottish Premier match.
