Sibbald was sent off for kicking out at Joe Cardle on Saturday, while Miller walked for an elbow on Nat Wedderburn in Saturday’s poor showing at Dunfermline.

Falkirk’s players were running - a lot - at training today as Peter Houston demanded double sessions until the squad raises their game on the park and he’s hoping improvements come as soon as Queen of the South on Saturday.

However the Bairns will be without the red-carded duo then so in a bid to give them additional game-time both will play for Alan Maybury’s side against Celtic tonight.
