Alex Tokarczyk will be handed his Falkirk debut on Saturday in the Scottish Cup match with Fraserburgh.

But boss Peter Houston says he won’t ring the changes for the visit of the Highland League side and will field a ‘strong’ side.

The boss travelled north to see the Broch play out a 3-3 draw with Cove Rangers and says they will “pose their own challenges”.

He added: “We’ll probably see a lot of possession but they have dangerous players. They are good at set pieces.”

Houston is forced into the change of goalkeeper as the cup arrangements for Danny Rogers’ loan deal have still to be clarified with Aberdeen assessing their own goalkeeping situation.

“Danny has been excellent for us recently,” added Houston. “He is really improving on his concentration and made important stops for us at Queen of the South.”
