Sports Editor David Oliver looks back over Ray McKinnon's side in what for many will be their final game in the navy blue. Match report - click here.

8 - No chance with either goal and some first half heroics kept Falkirk in it. A huge factor in Bairns 2019 improvement
7 - Good performance from the captain and great goal. Pushed forward well and kept Armstrong in check... most of the time.
8 - A composed performance and the foundation for the Bairns to add more to attack. Had confidence of his team-mates.
7 - Torrid few weeks for defender is behind him and gave a good account of himself, reading the game. Scored after working on attacking headers in training.
6 - Did fineand solid enough as part of a three-man central defensive system, but not outstanding.
7 - Great in the first half, the fan favourite quietened down in the second and could have scored twice. Wing-back role suited nicely.
5 - Protective of the defence, but failed to make a mark in the middle of the park and with three behind him was too deep to help attacks.
5 - Another lying too deep. Range of passing gets him through and helps attacks but with Osman equally deep Bairns didn't have enough midfield threat
7 - Best game in the navy blue playing in hole behind front two, and battled hard for over an hour on the park and helped in the opener.
7 - Another who stepped up to the occasion and improved but lack of co-ordination with Rudden cost Bairns at times, but he did supply the opener
9 - Another vital goal. Gave the Bairns hope as he has all season and worked tirelessly for the team - as he has all season. Big future, but a big miss next season.
5 - Busy enough after replacing Jarvis with something different up front.
6 - Added a bit of strength and power in the middle after replacing MacLean as Ray McKinnon tried to tweak his system
7 - Finally gave Rudden a strike partner in a system which looked 3-4-1-2 at times and it worked well. Two wins when playing with two forwards in recent weeks.
