Ben Hall has expressed his delight at getting regular game time with Falkirk, following his move to the club in January from Partick Thistle.

The defender joined the League One side after playing a total of five games for Thistle, with just two of those coming in the league.

Before pitching up at the Glasgow club, Hall had spent a few years at Premier League side Brighton after joining from Motherwell.

The 23-year-old was loaned out to Notts County in 2017/18. He headed back there last season, but injury limited him to just the one appearance.

So far at Falkirk, Hall has made six out of a possible eight appearances, including the last five in a row.

To get some momentum going again having not had too many senior opportunities in the past few years is invaluable, and Hall is pleased with how life at the Falkirk Stadium has started.

He said: “I think I’ve mentioned it before, it’s just about playing games for me. I haven’t played enough since I left Brighton so, I think I just need to play as many as I can between now and the end of the season and see what happens then.

“Last year I missed a full year with injury, so it would have been the year before that [last significant run]. When I was at Notts County [2017/18] I got a run of 15-20 games, so since then this will be the longest run [in a team] I’ve had.

“I’m feeling good, training has been going well and the boys have helped me out through it all and I’ve managed to get through it.”

Second-placed Falkirk are currently just a point behind leaders Raith Rovers, but have a far superior goal difference, and Hall is confident promotion awaits come the end of the season.

He added: “After the Clyde game it was a kick in the teeth to see that Raith had lost as well. It’s just about keeping on their heels for as long as possible and if it goes down to the last game and we have to win it, so be it.

“It’s about keeping the pressure on them, and hoping they slip up.”
