He might have only weeks left as a Falkirk player but Murray Wallace is determined to enjoy his remaining games in a Bairns shirt.

The highly rated 19-year-old centre-half signed on with Huddersfield Town in January but was loaned back to Westfield until the end of the current season.

Wallace clinched a Ramsdens Cup medal two weeks ago in the final win against Hamilton but he has no intention of giving anything less than 100 per cent in his remaining games as a Falkirk player.

The defender was just as disappointed as anybody after the Bairns slipped to defeat at Dens on Saturday and felt that they deserved from the game given their efforts.

“We were the better team,” he told Heraldsport.

“Sure, Dundee scored three goals but we controlled the game for long periods and had the majority of possession.”

Wallace has every sympathy for his central defensive partner Darren Dods who conceded a penalty after a Ryan Conroy cannoned off his arm with just 10 minutes of the first half remaining.

It came not long after Mark Millar had equalised for the Bairns and Falkirk were taking control of the game.

“The penalty decision was the turning point. I was close by to Darren and there was no way he could have reacted in time. It’s a sore one to take because there’s nothing you can do about it but it costs you a goal.”

Wallace said that Bairns boss Steven Pressley told his side after the game that they could be satisfied with their performance but that more cutting edge was required in the final third.
