Falkirk have confirmed that interim bosses Lee Miller and David McCracken have been given the job permanently after impressing since returning to the club.

The duo took the reins following Ray McKinnon’s sacking and have impressed, guiding the Bairns to two wins and a draw in their three games in temporary charge.

Interim chairman Lex Miller told the Falkirk website that the board had been impressed with the work done by the pair and believe they can secure promotion back to the Championship this season

“The Board have been very impressed with Lee and David since their return to the club,” Miller said.

Their drive and ambition to bring success to this club shines through each day and we fully believe they can lead us to promotion this season.

“There is no denying the lift that Lee and David’s presence has given both internally and externally to the club and we hope this continues, starting tomorrow at home to Raith Rovers.”

Their first game in permanent charge will come on Saturday when they face Raith Rovers at home tomorrow as they look to cut the Fifers’ four-point cushion at the top of the League One table.

Both Miller and McCracken have long histories with the Bairns as players and have made a really big impression in the short time they’ve been back at the club.

A win against Raith tomorrow would be the perfect start for the Bairns – and would see them maintain a long history of the Bairns winning in the final game before the club’s AGM takes place on Monday night.
