Recent respective form guides

Falkirk's dreadful home form has resulted in just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While Bairns have scored 4, a worringly large 9 have been leaked at the other end.

St. Johnstone's away form is none too clever either, collecting 2 wins and 3 draws from the last six. The games have constituted a decent return of 13 goals for the Saints, and 8 goals against.

Falkirk find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 27 games have yielded only 20 points. St. Johnstone see themselves just below half way in the Clydesdale Bank Scottish Premier, showing a record of 28 points from their 25 games played so far,
