Falkirk v Thistle

Not played Falkirk since we thrashed them 5-0 to win the title a few seasons ago, this should be a fairly interesting game. Going by the pre-match chat from McCall it looks as if we'll have quite a lot of changes, Mullen, Weston, Brownlie, Sneddon, Hodson etc. coming in so there's the possibility of a slightly dis-jointed team but hopefully some of those guys can take their chance and give us a selection problem going into the next league match. Not really seen anything of Falkirk this season but going purely by results it looks is if it's been a mixed start, 3 wins in their last 5 but have already lost to Airdrie and Kelty Hearts. Despite much of the criticism and ridicule this competition gets I still think we'd like to try and go the distance in it although it's far from the end of the world if we fail to do so.

Would like to see Weston and Mullin start in a front two, and not sure how many rotation options we've got in the centre of midfield. 

Would say something like this 

Sneddon

 

Hodson

Brownlie

Akinola 

Milne (still needs games imo) 

 

Smith

Bannigan 

Lyon / Stanway 

Fitzpatrick 

 

Mullen 

Weston 

 

Will be placing money on Alegría to score if he starts. If we win, great, if we don't, *shrug*

Got 9 from 11 right, quite pleased with that. We have no attacking options on the bench bar Lawless, even all the kids on the bench are defenders or midfielders.

Had we won by 4 or 5 it would not have flattered us. 
McGinn a class act and Thistle couldn’t handle Burrell and Morrison. No failures again. Defence had cigars out. Special mention for Gary Oliver - he is a very clever player. 
Thistle knew they were beat long before the end.

Was dowds injured? I'd have thought he'd have got a start for thistle the night.

Graham, Dowds and Tiffoney are all injured, the rest of the changes were 'rotation' which tonight's result and performance proved we're nowhere near good enough to do on such a large scale.

Aye there certainly won't be any of them the night forcing there way into jobbys strongest team.

Zero shots on target. Are you raging or putting it down to second string?

Don’t think anyone would say “raging” considering it’s the Challenge Cup, but seems like a dreadful performance even for a fringe lineup.
