Ray McKinnon has been explicit in his search for an additional striker at Falkirk, and has looked at three recently.

Former Raith forward Joel Thomas spent time with the Bairns earlier this month, while the boss spoke this week of his close call in signing ex-Celtic striker Scott McDonald to the Bairns.

But the Falkirk Herald understands two other strikers have been on trial with the team recently with another due to arrive from Norway tomorrow (Thursday).

Former Sheffield Wednesday youth Franck Betra has been with the club trying to win a deal.

The 21-year-old Frenchman was most recently at Greek Superleague side Giannina, but started his career in Yorkshire.

Another who the club looked at was Ola Adeyemo who played the first half of the reserve team win over Dunfermline yesterday afternoon before leaving the field with a hamstring complaint.
