St Mirren 1 - 2 Falkirk: John Baird double sinks Saints

Falkirk’s push for a promotion play-off spot got back on track with a narrow and somewhat controversial win against rock-bottom St Mirren, who despite a plethora of new faces being brought in can justifiably bemoan some decisions, but not the result, and are now an eye-watering 11 points from automatic safety.

Future looks bleak for John Sutton and St Mirren

It would not have seemed 
possible four years ago, when Danny Lennon’s St Mirren side beat Celtic in the semi-finals of the League Cup and then went on to prevail against Hearts in the final, but the Buddies are staring down the barrel of 
relegation to Scottish football’s third tier.

Falkirk 3 - 1 St Mirren: Buddies pack the wrong punch

When it’s December, and your team is winless in the league, and you’re finally playing well, with a 1-0 lead, it’s probably not a good idea to punch the opposition striker in the face in full view of the referee.
