Just three points separate the Bairns at the top and Cove in third as the two get set to go head to head at The Balmoral Stadium.
Despite that, the 28-year old says there hasn’t been any change in atmosphere amongst the players and that the pressure to win matches has been with them since the first game of the season.
"The training has been good all week and the tempo has been high,” said Durnan.

"It's like that every week no matter who we're playing, the atmosphere hasn't been any different.
"We know what we need to do, go and win the game, and that's the plan to go up there and try to win.
"When you're at Falkirk in this division that pressure to win is there every week and we just have to go out and do the business."
Durnan and his fellow defenders will be up against one of the most formidable attacking line-ups in the lower leagues in the form of strikers Mitch Megginson and Rory McAllister, supported by quality midfielders such as Fraser Fyvie.
"You have to do your job and that’s to go out and stop them playing,” said Durnan.
"That's their threat and it's our job as defenders to stop it.
"Every team has good players and it's up to us to control it, deal with it and then get the team on the front foot to utilise the strength in the strikers we have.
"They're a good side, well drilled, who like to play football.
"I don't think there was much in the game when we last played but we got the victory.
"We expect it to be similar, they will go out to try and play and it's up to us to stop them doing that."
