History of the Heart of Midlothian v Falkirk fixture

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 58 out of 85 times.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was earlier this season, when they eased past their opponents in a high-scoring 4 - 2 thriller, in a Scottish Premier match.

An indifferent set of results for Falkirk on the road, and I believe this game is only going to yield a solitary point for the Bairns. No-score draw
