Falkirk co-manager David McCracken is aware of his side’s good start – but they must make it count in upcoming League One matches.

The Bairns travel to Clyde this weekend yet to suffer defeat in the league and holding a four-point lead in first. It’s a promising start in their quest for a Championship return.

To make this beginning worthwhile though, McCracken says the positive results must keep mounting: “We’re in a good place just now with lots of competition for places.

“You can see that in the way they are training, the intensity is high. We say to the players all the time, we are learning as much as them.

“We set out at the start of the season to win as many games as possible. Fortunately we are in a place where we have did that so far. But that won’t count for anything if we are inconsistent from now until the end of the season. We don’t look too far ahead.”

There was doubt over this game as the Bully Wee battle with Covid-19 problems. Those seem to have passed though and as things stand, the game at Broadwood will go ahead.

McCracken has provided a fitness update of his own as Falkirk welcome back two of their players who tested positive for Covid-19: ” Our boys who had positive Covid-19 tests are back.

“The numbers are really good just now, everybody’s just about there except from Aidan Keena. He’s still a couple of weeks away.

“You can’t think that the game won’t be on as that would affect you. We have just had a good week’s training and we’ll do stuff on Friday on Clyde and the way they play.

“You would look at their most recent games but there most recent match was in November. But that is their last game so you look at their shape, personnel etc, but it’s all similar preparations.”
