Falkirk striker John Baird is expected back sooner rather than later.
A hamstring strain picked up in the 3-0 humbling of Dundee United forced the back-on-form frontman out of last week’s draw against Morton but he’s pledged to be back in contention soon.
“Baird got the scan and showed a small strain in the hamstring. He’s been working with Ross Grady the physio this week and he’s telling me he’ll be back on [Thursday] for training – I’ll wait and see.
“But he’s an enthusiastic boy and wants to play. He feels he can start training on Thursday, but we’ll see.”
Another injury victim is Joe McKee. His foot injury was scanned and revealed bone bruising in his heel.
“It’s clearing up,” added Houston. “All his training has been on the bike and in the pool, but he is improving.”
