Zak Rudden (30'), Scott Tiffoney (32'), Brian Graham (41', 59') and Joe Cardle (72') scored for Partick Thistle.
It has been seldom in recent times that Falkirk have kept a clean sheet. The reality is that The Bairns have been scored against in 6 of their previous 6 games, leaking 13 goals in the process. We will see whether or not that trend can be sustained into this next match.
Going into this encounter, Falkirk are unbeaten in their previous 5 league matches at home.
Following on from being defeated in their last game at the hands of Cove Rangers in League One competition, Montrose and their fans will hope to get a better result this time.
Mitch Megginson (44', 51') scored for Cove Rangers.
The numbers tell their own story, and Montrose have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, seeing opposing sides hit 14 goals overall. In defence, The Gable Endies could really do with shoring things up.
Coming into this contest, Montrose haven’t won away from home in the past 5 matches in the league.

It doesn’t get much better regarding selection, with just the sole fitness concern for the Falkirk manager Gary Holt to be concerned with from of an almost fully healthy group of players. Paul Dixon (Knock) will miss out.
Team News: Montrose
Owing to a completely injury-free squad available to select from, Montrose boss Stewart Petrie has zero fitness worries at all before this match.
We believe that Montrose could find themselves struggling to score against this Falkirk side who we think will likely get the win and a maybe even keep a clean sheet as well.
We’re therefore anticipating a very even match with a 1-0 win for Falkirk when the referee blows for full-time.
