History of the Motherwell v Falkirk fixture

Falkirk face a trip to Motherwell at Fir Park on Saturday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Bairns will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them lose 46 and win only 18 of the 81 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in March 2006, with Motherwell running out comfortable 3 - 1 winners in a Scottish Premier match.
