Steven Pressley will return to the touchline when Morton head to Falkirk from Greenock.

And Michael McGovern and Darren Dods will both be available.

The goalkeeper was red-carded on Saturday, but as the Bairns have appealed his sending off, McGovern is free to play against Mroton tonight before a decision is made on Thursday.

Dods returns after his one-match ban for accruing six bookings this season.

But despite having an improved pool, the Falkirk boss will not be able to select a trio of key players.

Farid El Alagui and Kieran Duffie are suspended following their red cards in the past fortnight.

And Craig Sibbald will also miss out for the Bairns. The 16-year-old winger is in action tonight for Scotland’s under-17s against Serbia at Somerset Park.

Ricky Sbagria has selected Sibbald to start the game, but Kyle Turnbull - another Bairn - did not make the starting 11.

Kick off at Teh Falkirk Stadium is 7.45 p.m.
