The pink boots that helped Lewis Kidd open the scoring for the Bairn actually belong to the flame-haired forward.

Kidd fired in the opener from a free-kick on the edge of the box and then denied all responsibility of owning the garish footwear.

He said: “They’re not even my boots, they’re Scotty Shepherd in the team’s boots!

I went in and took them one day had a go in them and liked them. They felt good, and felt sharp and did the trick here certainly and did the job.”

Kidd’s free-kick set the Bairns on their way and was a carbon copy of a strike from the right-back just weeks ago against Rangers in the under-20s.

However this time the goal counted for more but came against Kidd’s former club, prompting conflicting feelings when the ball hit the net.

He added: “I only realised I was celebrating against my old club once I’d started so I stopped. But then I ended up celebrating again and I then had to hold my hands up and apologise again. It was just emotions, they were high in the game.

“We’re just taking every game at a time and getting the points on the board that we can and we’ll see at the end of the season.

“There’s a great team spirit in the dressing room and we believe we can take any team on the day. We will always make chances in a game, it’s just about whether or not we can take them and keep it tight at the back, but we believe we can kick on now.”
