Dale Brooks says that Falkirk must look to win three points every time they play a home league game if they are to remain in contention at the top of the Championship table.

The Bairns assistant manager was speaking ahead of Saturday’s game against Raith Rovers - a team that currently sit three points ahead of Falkirk.

“Winning your home games is very important in this league,” he told Heraldsport. “Raith are a very dogged team. I wasn’t at all surprised to see them win at Dundee last weekend. They scored with an unusual goal, but that’s football. You take the breaks when you can.

“But we’re unbeaten in three league games and we’re feeling confident.”

The Falkirk Stadium pitch was succesfully repaired this week after its synthetic surface was damaged by a flare thrown from the Rangers during last weekend’s 2-0 cup defeat.

Brooks added: “We thought we had done enough to secure a replay, but it wasn’t to be. The players have responded well in training this week. They are desperate to get back out there and get back to winning ways.”

Bairns boss Gary Holt has a full squad to choose from, with no new injury worries being reported.
