When these sides last clashed here last August Queens goal machine Stephen Dobbie bagged a hat-trick. He was denied another after only 55 seconds, by Bairns keeper Harry Burgoyne, diving to his right. But Falkirk took the lead after eight minutes when Paul Dixon whipped over a cross from the left for Davis Keillor-Dunn to send a deft head flick high into the net.

The second came after 64 minutes when ex-Queens midfielder Ian McShane curled in a free-kick from the right for Frenchman William Edjenguele, on debut after his loan move from Dundee United, to power a header past keeper Alan Martin.

Falkirk were reduced to ten men in 72 minutes when Keillor-Dunn was sent off for two bookings in two minutes, but it didn’t prevent them from getting a third five minutes later from Deimantas Petravicius.
