Falkirk vs Dumbarton
Falkirk have had a huge turn around in fortunes recently and are currently one of the most in-form sides in the Scottish Championship, infact, only Livingston can top them in the last 5 games.
After spending all season looking over their shoulder they now find themselves only 9 points outside the play-off positions, surely a new target for the Bairns. This new found optimism comes after 4 wins in the last 5 league games and some great transfer window signings in Alex Jakubiak who has netted 3 goals in 4 games.
Another positive for Falkirk is their ability to score goals at the moment, during their 4 recent wins they have scored 15 goals including a 6-1 demolition of promotion favourites Dundee United.
Their opponents, Dumbarton, really just make up the numbers in this league. Currently a semi-professional outfit, they are unlikely to progress anymore than where they are now.
Although they are generally a side most teams in this league will look to beat, they are capable of springing a surprise result like their recent 1-0 away win to leaders St Mirren. Overall they generally get beat as much as avoid defeat.
Currently with the 2nd worst away record in the league, they do manage to put up a good defensive show on the road so a narrow Falkirk win is probably the most likely result.
