Steven Gerrard’s SPFL Premiership league leaders are visiting the lowest ranked team to qualify for the knock-out stages – the League One leading Bairns.
He’s expected to ring the changes for the game on Falkirk’s artificial surface after the midweek Europa League draw with Benfica, and this week’s visit of Standard Liege in the continental competition.
That could mean an unpredictable line-up but David McCracken and Lee Miller’s team has had to cope with two late call-offs from the squad through positive COVID-19 tests, but that aside only have Aidan Keena missing for the big match of the season.
The match is being shown live on Premier Sports but we’ll bring you all the action, reaction and updates as it happens live from The Falkirk Stadium.

On a bitingly cold evening in Falkirk, the warm glow around Rangers’ season was undiminished.
Falkirk 0 Rangers 4
89 - Tackle
Great despairing tackle from Morgaro Gomis to pick the pocket of Ianis Hagi, dallying on the edge of the box.
Youngster has done so well since coming on. A mazy run and then clever reverse through ball for Itten isn’t read by the Swiss international.
hen you’re thinking ahead of an international player - the future looks bright.
OFF - Dixon
ON - Devenney
This is not what Ranger want to see.
Connor Goldson remains down after a Falkirk corner is cleared away. He’ll need treatment.
With Filip Helander out with COVID, George Edmundson suspended and Niko Katic still a long way from returning, Rangers are depending on their reliable ever-present more than ever.
77 - Save
PJ Morrison denies Itten close in after Defoe brought down a ball from the right and tried to tee up his strike partner.
Not his night.
