Jamie MacDonald thinks Falkirk are doing everything right, except getting the wins their play deserves.

A tricky trip to third-placed Raith Rovers awaits on Saturday, more than a month since the Bairns last won - against Hibs at Easter Road.

After a bright start Falkirk went down 3-1 to Rangers in midweek, while the Glasgow club also saw off Raith more convincingly a fortnight ago with a 4-0 win.

The recent record in Kirkcaldy isn’t terribly good for the Bairns, but the goalie is sure the tide will turn, just so long as his team-mates continue to do the right things on the park.

“The defeat to Rangers was the story of our season – playing not too badly but just not getting the results and the wins that we’re wanting and going for.

“That’s just what happens sometimes and hopefully our luck turns sooner rather than later.

“We need to keep up the good team performances, cut out the little mistakes and maybe carry a little more luck along with us.

“Theres always a little bit of luck involved in football and some things haven’t been going for us with deflections beating us and going against us but there’s more to it than that and we need to look at ourselves, and cut out the mistakes we’ve been guilty of at times.”

Ithas been a frustarting start to the season with five wins in all competitions, from a dozen games - but only four have been at home at The Falkirk Stadium, and two of those against Rangers.

“I don’t think that we are far off a victory,” added MacDonald. “There’s no game we have really come away thinking we played poorly - maybe Queen of the South wasn’t our best and maybe a bit flat, first half at Stranraer we didn’t play well but we did everything but score in the second half.

“Then we play Rangers, play well and lose. What we have to focus on is continuing the good things we’re doing, keep doing the correct things and the wins will come, I’m sure.

“The sooner that happens the better obviously but if we get three points on Saturday we only go three points behind Raith who have had a good start to the season, and that’s clased as a disappointing start in our book.

“So we need to go out on Saturday and get the win – once we do I think we’ll see a lot more coming too and get a wee run going.”
