Falkirk manager Steven Pressley's only major concern is striker Tam McManus, who will miss the Stirling Albion game.Stirling's plans for have been thrown into disarray by two long-term injuries and a virus that has left manager John O'Neill without 12 first-team players.

The Scottish Football League rejected a plea to have the game postponed.

Ross Forsyth and Martyn Corrigan are injured while the other absentees are suffering from illness, with Ryan Borris having suspected swine flu.

Falkirk manager Steven Pressley: "We did the dirty side of the game well against Raith in that everyone worked really hard and closed down their opponents well.

"Defensively we were good, but we need to show a bit more in the top half of the pitch.

"Stirling will look to hit us on the break and thankfully our fitness levels looked good the other night and that will allow us to cope with that approach."

Stirling Albion manager John O'Neill:"The guys have been floored by the virus and I will not be able to start thinking about a formation or personnel until Sunday lunch-time at the earliest."
