The Bairns co-boss is urging his stars to be fearless in this clash. He’s described the tie as a ‘glamour tie’ for the League One club, who are fighting for promotion from the third tier.

It wasn’t all that long ago Miller was helping Falkirk shock Hearts. He played in the famous Scottish Cup tie which saw the Bairns beat Hearts 4-0 at Brockville. He’s sent a message to his plyers to try and pull off an similar feat.

“Craig Levein and Peter Houston were the managers at the time, I was just a young nipper,” said Miller. “I had no fear whatsoever and just went into the game and did well. Collin Samuel was unplayable that day, scored a hat-trick.

“It was just a great day and an atmosphere that I had never experienced as a young kid. It felt like there were 70,000 in Brockville. Hopefully, we can generate that again in the Falkirk Stadium.

“It comes up every now and then on my social media. I will watch it and it every time it gives me goosebumps. We won the first header and were on the front foot straight away. We hit the ground running and they couldn’t cope with us.

“That fearlessness is something we are trying to put across to the boys – we have nothing to lose. It is a glamour tie if anything. We’ll just go out and play the way we want to play. All the pressure is on Hearts for me so we can play our own game and see where that takes us.

“It is Saturday night, under the lights, on television. What more could you ask for? Go and show the world what you can do.”
