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 86 times.
The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in March 2008, when they played out a goalless draw in a Scottish Premier match.
