David McCracken has admitted that the Falkirk management team are facing a selection headache due to the performances of Motherwell loanee PJ Morrison.

Morrison played 25 minutes as a substitute against Forfar Athletic last month after no.1 goalkeeper, Robbie Mutch, was sent off for lashing out at an opponent.

As Mutch served his subsequent suspension, the Well loanee stepped into the Bairns team for fixtures against East Fife and Partick Thistle.

The 22-year-old kept a clean sheet in a home win over the Fifers and then saved a Brian Graham penalty in a 2-2 draw at Firhill on Saturday.

Mutch is now back available for selection but McCracken hasn’t ruled out Morrison keeping his place.

“He has come in with Robbie going out after the sending off and he has done brilliantly,” he said.

“It is a good penalty but he makes a really good save. It kept us in the game and we are really pleased [with him].

“There is a decision to make but that is what we want. We tried to find someone for a long time to come in and challenge Robbie, so we have a decision to make and we will see where we go with that.”

Falkirk face Dumbarton at the C&G Systems Stadium in the League Cup on Tuesday night as they look to put pressure on Dunfermline at the top of Group E.

The Bairns will then have the weekend off before taking on League One table-toppers Cove Rangers on 21st November.
