Bairns Boss Wants Better

By Calum Fisher

FALKIRK boss Peter Houston believes his side still have lessons to learn despite his sides 3-1 win over St Mirren on Saturday

The Bairns came from a goal down to move in to third place in the Scottish Championship.

However, manager Houston admitted he wasn’t happy with his player’s display prior to half time.

He told uwsnewsroom: “We got there in the end but we were really disappointed in our first half performance.

“It takes me to have to go in and rattle them up a wee bit which we didn’t need to have last year, so we have to ask ourselves questions.”

Saints went in front through a Lewis Morgan strike before an incident involving Jack Baird and Falkirk’s Lee Miller lead to the Buddies defender being sent off for punching the Bairns striker.

Goals from Miller, Bob McHugh and Miles Hippolyte in the second half secured the points for Peter Houston’s side.

Speaking ahead of Queen of the South’s visit to the Falkirk Stadium this coming Saturday, the Falkirk manager said, “We’ve got to learn from our first half performance on Saturday as it was really poor.”

“We need to make sure we got on top of games right from the start, it’s slightly concerning me so far this season that we haven’t been doing better.”

Queen of the South make the trip to Falkirk having not won in the league since September when they defeated Raith Rovers 3-1.

“We’re hanging on in the league without playing our best so we just need to start finding some consistency especially at home, so Saturday against Queen of the South gives an opportunity to do that.”
