Falkirk striker Conor Sammon has voiced his support for Lee Miller and David McCracken, who he thinks are worthy candidates for the Bairns manager’s job.

The pair are currently in charge of the Bairns whilst an extensive search for a new manager is conducted following the dismissal of Ray McKinnon.

In their first game, Sammon inspired his side to victory with two goals in a 4-1 over Linlithgow Rose. He has scored nine goals this term.

Sammon insists he would not be disappointed if Miller and McCracken got the Falkirk reigns full-time.

“It was a really enjoyable game against Linlithgow,” he said. “With the situation with our manager they probably fancied themselves for an upset, but we prepared well.

“I’m delighted to get the result. It’s never nice when these type of things happen (McKinnon’s dismissal). We’re all fully aware we haven’t been performing as we should have been.

“The lads all got on really well with Ray and Darren Taylor. We know the quality we have in the group and the new boys that have came in have provided a fresh start for everyone.

“I think it showed as the boys were keen to make an impression.”

When asked about whether he’d want Miller and McCracken to get the job full-time, Sammon said: “Absolutely yeah, they’ve came in with a new lease of life.

“They both obviously have an affiliation with the club from playing here. It’s been very enjoyable since they’ve taken over.”
