Falkirk will face Forfar Athletic in the fifth round of the Scottish Cup.

The Bairns were entered into today’s draw at Hampden Park after beating local rivals Stenhousemuir 1-0 at Ochilview on Saturday.

Steven Pressley’s side have now been handed a home match against Forfar, who currently lie fourth in the Second Division table.

The game will be played on the weekend of Saturday, February 2, 2013.

Falkirk last played the Station Park-based club in a competitive fixture in September 2001, when they won 2-1 away in a League Cup second round clash.

Forfar last tasted victory against the Bairns in 1985 when both sides were playing in the First Division.
