Lyle Taylor and Farid El Alagui.

How about this for a Bairns strikeforce?

In just 18 months, this pair have scored more than a half-century of goals between them for Falkirk.

Current fans’ favourite Lyle Taylor met his predecessor Farid El Alagui before Saturday’s derby-day win over Dunfermline Athletic.

The Moroccan, who left the Bairns to join League One club Brentford last summer, made the trip north to attend the Falkirk Supporters’ Society sportsman’s breakfast event.

He joined 130 fans to watch a video montage of the 28 goals he scored last season, courtesy of FalkirkTV.

Taylor added to his own goal tally in Tuesday night’s win against Livingston - and is now just three off the total scored by Farid last season - with at least a dozen games still to be played.
