Cash from two cup games with Rangers has been made available to Steven Pressley for a first team re-enforcement.

The Bairns boss met chairman Martin Ritchie at the end of last week to discuss bolstering the squad and it is understood one new addition can be funded.​

Experience is key for the Bairns who have lost twice from two league games, and it is that attribute boss Pressley is seeking

However, speaking to The Falkirk Herald in the wake of Tuesday’s narrow defeat to Rangers, Pressley admitted his young players had given him something to think about after their performance against the Glasgow giants.

“I feel we need a little bit of re-inforcement in the core of the team - I don’t exactly have one position in mind. The individual must be the right type, and his position must be right.

“There are a few players I am considering, but haven’t moved on at this stage but there is no specific target or area being addressed other than we are seeking experience to guide the young players through.

“The philosophy has not changed, but I just feel we need strengthening and it is positive that there are funds available if the right player for the right position with the right amount of experience does become available.

“However the performance on Tuesday night did give me plenty to think about.”Although he will not divulge on potential targets or positions, The Falkirk Herald has learned an attacker is one of those within his thoughts.

Another boost to Falkirk following the performance that pleased Pressley is the return of Darren Dods.

The defender has struggled through pre-season and had to withdraw after just 20 minutes against Stirling Albion with an achilles problem.

However Pressley admitted Dods has “a chance” of being involved and adding more experience for the tricky trip to Morton on Saturday.
