History of the Falkirk v St. Johnstone fixture

St. Johnstone pack their bags to visit Falkirk at The Falkirk Stadium on Saturday afternoon, hoping to improve upon an average previous return from this fixture. Of the 48 games played, Saints have recorded 12 wins, and Falkirk have come away with 24 victories.

The previous match played between the two at The Falkirk Stadium was within the last three years, in February 2007, as the visitors ran out cosy 0 - 3 winners in a Scottish F.A. Cup match.

Recent respective form guides

Falkirk's poor home run has seen them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While Bairns have scored 7, a worringly large 10 have been leaked at the other end.

St. Johnstone's away form is none too clever either, winning and losing 3 each of the last six games. A generous 9 goals have been both scored and conceded in this period.

Falkirk find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 17 games have yielded only 12 points. St. Johnstone see themselves just below half way in the Clydesdale Bank Scottish Premier, showing a record of 19 points from their 17 games played so far,
