Falkirk could again turn to Will Vaulks to fill in at right-back after another defender was struck down by injury.

New signing Ryan Sinnamon - a six-month loanee from Rangers - was drafted in to The Falkirk Stadium as cover for injuries to Kieran Duffie and Aaron Muirhead.

But on his first day of training yesterday Sinnamon twisted an ankle which puts him at risk of missing tonight’s game with Peterhead on the Petrofac Cup.

Peter Houston, the Falkirk boss, said: “I was planning on having him involved but he went over on his ankle at training so we’ll have to wait and see how he is.”

The Bairns received clearance from Rangers on Saturday allowing Sinnamon to play in the competition, despite his parent club’s continued involvement.

Sinnamon was an unused substitute on Saturday when Falkirk won 1-0 against Raith Rovers just hours after announcing his five-month switch. Captain Will Vaulks lined up in the right-back role for the victory.

Lee Miller, another new signing at the Bairns, is also in the pool for selection.
