Millar - Put pressure on others with wins

FALKIRK midfielder Mark Millar says the Bairns are desperate to bounce back from their weekend defeat to Dunfermline - and pile the pressure back onto their title rivals.

The Bairns believe they were given a get out of jail card by tonight’s opponents Partick Thistle beating league leaders Raith Rovers.

But they must now win every game to keep the pressure on the top two according to Millar, starting with tonight’s match, which kicks off at 7.45 p.m. at The Falkirk Stadium.

“Saturday was a set-back,” Millar told Heraldsport. “We could have taken advantage of Raith Rovers losing.

“But we just have to win every game and put the pressure on the other teams and who knows.

“That starts with (tonight’s) game with Partick Thistle.”

The Jags have yet to face the Bairns at The Falkirk Stadium on league duty this season though Millar did find the net against them in the Scottish Cup.

Matches between the two have been plagued by bad weather and twice cancelled within an hour of kick off.

Falkirk have played Partick three times already winning once at Firhill in the Co-Operative Insurance Cup, and losing a replay there in the Scottish Cup.

The sides fought out a 2-2 draw at The Falkirk Stadium in the original tie.

East Stirlingshire host Annan Athletic at Ochilview tonight while Stenhousemuir travel to Forfar.
