Falkirk have signed Wolves’ keeper Harry Burgoyne on loan until the end of the season – but can he help keep the Bairns in the Championship?

The 6’4″ keeper has made seven appearances for the Molineux side since making his debut in 2016.

With Ray McKinnon’s side only one place above the foot of the table, their Championship status is precarious.

Adding Burgoyne will add to the competition for the gloves as Leo Fasan and David Mitchell battle it out.

The 22-year-old has had a number of spells out on loan and will be hoping to impress at the Falkirk Stadium.

He originally joined Plymouth on loan in the summer but a broken ankle brought that to an early end.

He’s since returned to action for Wolves’ under-23s and will be eager for first-team action.

Falkirk have the second-worst defence in the league and have conceded far too many cheap goals this season.

Having to claw back six points on Alloa to avoid slipping into the playoffs makes the Bairns’ task even harder.

Keeping Zak Rudden on loan from Rangers should help them and Burgoyne might find himself thrown straight into the side.

The Bairns welcome Inverness to Falkirk on Saturday and three points would be absolutely crucial.
