David McCracken was loving Falkirk’s 3-0 win over Dumbarton- but talk of David Goodwillie turning up at the Falkirk Stadium won’t be entertained.

The co-boss was left thrilled with his side after a 3-0 win over Dumbarton. Two goals from Declan McManus and a Charlie Telfer effort secured a nice three points for McCracken and Lee Miller.

It keeps them at an arms length from Raith and Airdrie, who are above them in the League One table. They’ll travel to Peterhead next before a league break welcomes a Scottish Cup trip to Arbroath.

Speaking after the 3-0 win over the Sons, McCracken explained what pleased him about the win. Rumours surrounding a potential Falkirk move for Clyde striker David Goodwillie were also dismissed.

“That’s not a move that the club will be venturing upon so I can kill off that rumour,” said McCracken of Goodwillie. “January is a long month. Things are changing day-to-day both for our own squad and outwith it, but there are players we are looking at and trialists for us to cast an eye over.

“Teams are maybe coming here and sitting in a wee bit so it’s up to us to break them down. We were patient and mixed up our play at times. For the first 10-15 minutes of the second half, Dumbarton had their opportunities and it was a bit scrappy

“Once we got our foot on the ball and a wee bit more control then the rest of the game was us, which was pleasing to see. It was good to see the subs coming on and making an impact.

“We can’t affect other games so as long as we are doing the business we can’t do anything else. We just need to concentrate on our games.”
