Recent respective form guides

Falkirk's home form is poor, winning just 2 of the last six, and losing the other 4. While Bairns have scored 5, a worringly large 9 have been leaked at the other end.

The away form of Rangers however, is much more impressive, with a marvellous return of five wins and one defeat from the last six. The games have constituted a decent return of 10 goals for the The Gers, and 6 goals against.

Falkirk are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 3 points from 5 matches. Rangers's 9 points from 5 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 5th position.
