Four goals in the closing 21 minutes saw the Bairns record a somewhat flattering win to gain revenge for their heavy defeat at Central Park back in February.

There were three changes to the starting line up from the previous week with Jason Naismith, Thomas O’Brien and Greg Stewart returning to the side.
Kenny Adamson was ruled out by a back injury while Kyle Miller and Marc McKenzie both dropped to the bench.
We opened the game brightly and with just three minutes gone Stewart set up McAllister but his curling shot from 12 yards drifted over the bar.
Minutes later the Bairns almost opened the scoring when Higgins found himself through on goal and attempted to chip the ball over Stewart but saw his effort go inches wide of the target.
Midway through the first half the lively Stewart was denied by keeper McGovern who blocked his fierce shot from nine yards.
Stewart then blocked a Dale Fulton effort while at the other end Stewart fired wide.
Moore had an effort held by McGovern on the hour mark but nine minutes later we found ourselves a goal behind when Darren Dods slotted home from close range.
In an effort to get back into the game Coult replaced Naismith four minutes later and minute’s later fellow substitute McKenzie was well placed but a timely interception by Dick denied him the chance.
With 78 minutes gone the Bairns got the killer second goal when Rowan sent over a cross with Higgins sending the ball towards goal with the defence closing in Craig Sibbald fired home from a yard out.
Two goals in the closing three minutes then put a somewhat flattering gloss on the score line.
Firstly Jay Fulton was brought down by Stevenson in the box and Sean Higgins slotted home the resulting spot kick, and with a minute remaining the same player burst through to fire past Stewart.
