Falkirk V Queen of South at Falkirk Stadium - Match Preview

No Durojaiye for Bairns

Falkirk midfielder Olumide Durojaiye continues to be ruled out with a broken bone in his foot as the Bairns entertain to Queen of the South.

Manager Gary Holt also has a doubt over Will Vaulks for a game that the hosts go into with a spring in their step.

Technical director Alex Smith said: "We scored in injury time at Raith last week to get a deserved point. That goal gave everyone a real lift and the Queen of the South game cannot come quick enough as a result.

"Queen's are a good side with a good young manager but it is a game we are looking to win."

Queen's manager Jim McIntyre will decide his line-up after Saturday lunchtime fitness checks on Ryan McGuffie, Stephen McKenna and Daniel Carmichael who are all carrying knocks.

Paul Burns is out with a groin injury with McIntyre looking for his men to a vital missing ingredient to their game.

He said: "Our performance levels have been high however we have not picked up the points we should have as our conversion rate in front of goal is not high enough.

"We could be low on numbers but if we play like we have been and take our chances we can win it."
