Technical Director Alex Smith said: "Despite our slow start to the season I am sure our fans will back us in a fantastic manner in this game.

Assistant manager Gerry McCabe admits the second-placed Pars will need to dig deep against a Falkirk side yet to hit top form this season.
McCabe said: "This is a derby game where form and league placings go out of the window so we cannot just turn up and expect to win.
"We have been playing well and if we play like we can it will take a good team to beat us.
"Falkirk have a good squad and things will click together for them and we have to ensure we do not allow that to happen against us."
