Six games have passed since Falkirk last tasted defeat and the feelgood factor his in abundance at Westfield, and will no doubt be supplemented by the Ladbrokes manager of the month award for the boss.

Houston has also landed gongs in December 2014, December last year and then again in February 2016.
