Hughes: No worries

Celtic head into their rearranged Scottish Premier League clash with Falkirk looking to make amends for back-to-back draws.

The league leaders dominated Saturday's meeting with St Mirren, which ended in a 1-1 draw, and will be hoping to rediscover their winning form at Parkhead on Tuesday night.

The Hoops face their sixth match in 18 days against Falkirk and boss Gordon Strachan will be without a number of first-team players, including goalkeeper Artur Boruc, left-back Lee Naylor and midfielder Shunsuke Nakamura.

Mark Brown is set to continue in goal and Massimo Donati may earn a place in the starting line-up after recovering from an injury.

Strachan's side have a narrow two-point advantage at the top of the table from arch-rivals Rangers, who have a game in hand, ahead of the match.

Winning run

Falkirk go into the fixture in slightly better form than Celtic, having scored eight goals in winning their last two games.

Boss John Hughes has no fresh injuries to contend with in his squad following the tough game against Dundee United.

A win for Falkirk, who are currently ninth in the table, would elevate them to seventh in the SPL.
