Bairns boss not panicked over striker shortage

Gary Holt is hoping to run the rule over trialist striker Phillip Roberts again.

The former Norwich, Inverness and Arsenal man made a scoring start to his first Falkirk appearance with the Bairns’ equaliser in Saturday’s 2-2 draw at Dunfermline.

Hiss trike cancelled out an earlier goal from Pars’ Ryan Ferguson, and Conor McGrandles and Kevin Buchan were also on the scoresheet in the entertaining friendly at East End Park.

And afterwards, Holt said he would like another look at Roberts, though wouldn’t be rushed into a decision over filling Lyle Taylor’s boots.
