Recent respective form guides

Falkirk's poor home run has seen them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While Bairns have scored 6, a worringly large 13 have been leaked at the other end.

Rangers's away form is none too clever either, coming away with three points on 3 occassions, but drawing 1 and losing 2. A generous 11 goals have been both scored and conceded in this period.

Falkirk are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 21 points from 27 matches. Rangers find themselves in a respectable 3rd position, courtesy of the 46 points they have accumulated from 27 games.
