With the club currently top of League One, Falkirk man Louis Longridge says he is happy to be pleasing fans with his performances.

The Bairn was recently named Verifier Player of the Month after some impressive October displays. He netted two goals and notched two assists in three league games as the club climbed to the top of the third tier.

Longridge insists he’s just happy to be entertaining fans.

“Obviously getting rewarded for your performances out on the pitch by the fans is nice,” Longridge said at a special event held in Grangemouth’s Royal British Legion club where he helped hand out free tickets for this weekend’s clash with Airdrieonians.

“My main objective when I step out onto the pitch is to entertain supporters. We’ve went top of the league as well which is good, so it’s been a good month.

“The game on Saturday against Forfar was always going to be difficult.  In this league teams will always drop points so it’s just about focusing on ourselves. We hoped that if we won on Saturday three points would be enough to take us top and obviously it’s worked out well.”

Between Falkirk in first and Peterhead in eighth, there are just ten points splitting the sides. It’s a very tight league, with the table only full split by 12 points.

Despite how close everybody is to each other, Longridge insists that Falkirk will remain fully focused on their own results, although a careful eye will remain on other teams.

He said: “You’re expected to be at the top. When you’re playing games against teams above you, you’re always paying attention to their results.

“It’s because you want to leapfrog them to get above them so you’re always paying attention. We are top of the league, and if we keep doing what we can and take care of our own business, we’ll remain there.

“If we keep winning then obviously we can start just looking after ourselves, we won’t need to worry about the teams below us. I think your Raith’s and East Fife’s will be concentrating on what we’re doing now.

“That obviously comes with the added pressure of expecting to be top by the fans and everyone at the club. When I signed our objective was to get promoted so it’s just a case of looking after ourselves.”
