A good spell of play by Falkirk ends with a Morrison cross met by a Sammon flick on at the near post which troubles McKenzie who cant gather it but no Falkirk player is able to pounce before he gather it at the second attempt.

64mins: Gomis booked

Persistent fouling in the middle of the pitch and Gomis suffers for it with a yellow card after bringing down Megginson.

Falkirk are caught on the break and Cove eventually get the ball to Blair Yule in space on the right edge of the box who strikes it low and Mutch blocks it with his legs to once again keep the Bairns alive in this match.

51mins: Great save from Mutch!

This match would been done and dusted but for a SUPERB save from Robbie Mutch.

Connor Smith with a powerful dipping effort from distance looks bound for the far corner but Mutch gets down and gets a strong hand to it to turn the ball around the post.

GOAL Cove make it 2-0

48 minutes played and it’s another disaster from a set piece.

Falkirk don’t deal with Fyvie’s delivery and Megginson somehow is unmarked in the middle of the area at six yards as the ball bounces to him and he has the easiest of finishes past Mutch.
