Falkirk manager Lee Miller says the Bairns must discover their clinical touch when on top after more dropped points at home.

After a 1-0 defeat to Airdrieonians last weekend, Miller and David McCracken’s side drew 0-0 with Partick Thistle. The two sides fighting for automatic promotion from League One played out a stalemate in terrible conditions.

Ian McCall’s side finished with 10 men after former Bairn Zak Rudden was sent off, Miller frustrated his side couldn’t find a route to goal: “We want to be taking three points from our home games but I thought it was probably a fair result in the end.

“We weren’t at our best although I thought we were great in the first 25 minutes. I thought we were the better team first half then they got a grip of the game in the second and the sending off changed that and Partick go and sit in.

“They were difficult to breakdown because they were well organised and have good players but the conditions also came in to it a good bit. The players were trying to focus even more when dribbling because it was being blown all over the place.

“It was similar to Airdrie last week where we never took our chances when we were on top but it’s another point, we’re top of the league, we’ll analyse the game and then look forward to East Fife.

“The conditions played a factor. It wasn’t going in the one direction, it was swirling all over the place. We took the game to Partick but it wasn’t to be. We never got the rub of the green in their box.

“We have a good squad, a good freshness and we just pick ourselves up and go again. We don’t speak about winning the league at all, we just take every game as it comes because if we get too carried away we will lose focus on what we’re looking to do and that’s pick up points every single game.”
