THE OPPONENT

Falkirk have had a strange season to this point, but in recent weeks they have shown signs of recovery as Paul Hartley begins to bring his own players into the squad. 

Hartley had to wait 10 games for his first win as Falkirk boss, with it coming in December against Queen of the South. On Saturday, they grabbed a sensational win over, second placed, Dundee United as the won 6-1. 

Hartley has been busy in the January window, as he has brought in striker Andrew Nelson, defender Tommy Robson and midfielder Sean Welsh, and the club have also signed Louis Longridge to a permeant deal.
