Falkirk boss David McCracken has presided over a string start to his team’s League One campaign. In fact, should his team avoid defeat to Airdrieonians on Saturday, they will have gone one third of the season unbeaten.

It should be remembered that the League One season only has 27 games this season. So far after eight of those Falkirk sit at the top of the table with six wins and two draws from those fixtures.

Acknowledges that start has been good

Whilst McCracken acknowledges that would be a good record to have achieved, he is more interested in taking things one game at a time, as he bids to get Falkirk promoted back to the Championship.

“Of course it’s a big achievement. But we don’t look too far ahead. We say it all the time, it’ll probably get boring for you guys hearing the same stuff, but it’s one game at a time. That’s exactly what we’ve done since the start of the season. We take one game at a time, and then progressing forward onto the next one” he said.


Will continue to work hard

Falkirk are currently in a good run of form. Indeed, the Bairns have won their last five league games. McCracken wants the hard work that has led to that runs of wins to continue when Falkirk face Airdrieonians.

“It’s good that we are still unbeaten, but we’ve got to keep doing the same things that we have done to continue that, and that’s exactly how it’s going to be on Saturday. We’re going to need to work hard defensively, work hard on the shape, and also work hard when we’ve got the ball as well.”
