History of the Falkirk v Inverness Caledonian Thistle fixture

Falkirk prepare to entertain Inverness Caledonian Thistle at The Falkirk Stadium on Saturday afternoon, needing to improve on a poor record between the sides. The visitors have won 4 of the 11 previous games, with the Bairns winning just 3.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at The Falkirk Stadium was earlier this season, as the visitors ran out cosy 0-2 winners in a Scottish Premier match.

Recent respective form guides

Falkirk's woeful home form means they have chalked up just a single victory, with 5 defeats, from the last six. While Bairns have scored 5, a worringly large 11 have been leaked at the other end.

Inverness CT's away form is none too clever either, collecting 2 wins and 3 draws from the last six. Just 7 goals have scored in these games, though to be fair only a measly 4 have been let in at the wrong end.

Falkirk are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 17 points from 22 matches. Inverness CT's 31 points from 22 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 6th position.

FootyMad's prediction ...

Nothing seems to be going right for the Bairns at home recently, and I can see no immediate turn around in fortunes as the Caley Thistle come away with an easy victory. Away win
