Lee Miller says that a point against League One league leaders Raith was a good one for Falkirk considering how the game played out.

Both sides played out a 1-1 draw in a game dogged with red cards, with three being shown on the day.

Charlie Telfer and Morgaro Gomis received red for the Bairns whilst Kyle Benedictus was sent off for the Rovers. There was also a fair few more physical challenges put in during the fiery clash.

A draw leaves Falkirk four points off first and second now with John McGlynn’s side only top on goal difference.

“It was a rollercoaster game,” said Miller. “I thought we started really well with 11 men. We created a good few chances and started on the front foot, everything was good. We then lose Charlie and I don’t think it’s a red. Morgaro does what he has to do.

“You get thrown things like and you need to adapt. We have to be fitter and stronger than every team we play against and I thought we were the better team throughout the whole game.

“I could go through every single one of the. It was like the old times at Falkirk Stadium. We nullified their chances and were unlucky not to take the win.”

Red cards change Falkirk v Raith says McGlynn

Meanwhile, Raith boss McGlynn is aware that the red cards impacted the game. Although he’s wanted more protection for his players in recent weeks, he thinks refs have been a bit card-happy as of late.

“Most of the season I’ve thought there’s not been enough protection at times for players,” McGlynn said. “But I think they’ve gone the other way in the last few weeks and are now quick to pull red cards out.

“It obviously has an effect on the game. Fair play to the back four, we end up with a back four of Jamie Watson, David McKay, Kyle MacDonald and Danny Armstrong.

“If you put names in a hat you couldn’t come up with a back four like that. If somebody had told me I’d play that back four, I’d have said I was steaming!”
