Recent respective form guides

St. Mirren's home form is poor, winning just 2 of the last six, and losing the other 4. While Buddies have scored 5, a worringly large 11 have been leaked at the other end.

Falkirk's away form is none too clever either, accumulating just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While the Bairns have hit 9 goals, 19 have hit the back of the wrong net.

St. Mirren see themselves just below half way in the Clydesdale Bank Scottish Premier, showing a record of 14 points from their 13 games played so far, Falkirk are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 12 points from 13 matches.
