“It’s the old football cliché of taking one game at a time, it’s hard not to look ahead and we did with the three upcoming home games, we spoke about the importance of the Queen of the South and Falkirk games and we’re now onto the Falkirk game.”
“It’s another massive game for us, if we can win it then it sets us up for next week’s section which would be Dumbarton home and away. Our aim now is to take it into the last week of the season. If we can continue to get the result on Tuesday night, then concentrate on the Dumbarton games, suddenly then the end of the season is in our own hands because if we take enough points into the last week then there could be two massive six-pointers against Dunfermline and Morton.”
“It’ll be a tough match, Falkirk are playing well, Saturday’s defeat was a first in a while for them in a derby game and Paul [Hartley] won’t be happy. What we’ve got to do is to concentrate on the 90 minutes, there will a few changes in the Dumbarton game that are forced upon us, it’s all about everyone giving everything they’ve got on Tuesday night and really concentrating on the two Dumbarton matches after that.”
Falkirk are currently sitting in 8th place and have been in good from recently. Manager Paul Hartley has eased relegation play-off fears, with them eight points above Dumbarton. Falkirk lost their last encounter against Dunfermline but were on a run of 7 matches unbeaten in the Championship beforehand.
With no fresh injury concerns, all players are available for selection. Nathan Austin said in build up to the match: “The most important thing in football is to get the win but obviously on a personal note, it was good to get the monkey off my back and get the first goal for the club.”
“It’s a big game for us and a win would keep our play-off hopes alive and that’s the main thing. On a personal note, when you come up against an old club you want to do well and show them what I’ve got.”
