BOB McHugh reckons Falkirk will be heading to Cappielow today full of the confidence from their 6-1 hiding of Dundee United last weekend — despite the Bairns losing 4-1 to Inverness in midweek.

This weekend’s visitors proved the Championship can be the most unpredictable league in the country by following up their brilliant win over the Terrors on Saturday with a dismal result in the Highlands.

But ex-Bairns striker McHugh knows enough about the players at Falkirk to be aware that they’ll be focusing on the good from last weekend rather than getting hung up on the Caley result.

He told the Tele: “Falkirk are a team who have been a wee bit inconsistent this season so far and definitely find themselves at the wrong end of the table. Last week they managed to get a good result against Dundee United before a poor result against Inverness on Tuesday.

“They’ll still be coming to Cappielow with a bit of confidence from the United game I would imagine, so it’ll be an interesting game and one which we’ll be looking to take the three points from.

“We’ll be looking at exactly what it was they did well against United and try to nullify that and I think we’ve got enough confidence in our own dressing room in the ability we’ve got to make it a really interesting game. We’re looking up at the table and they’re looking down.

“We’re looking at taking points off Falkirk and putting ourselves up and in about the play-offs.”

McHugh knows it’s important to make sure Ton keep picking up points and find the consistency that has eluded them so far this season.

The Sinclair Street outfit have yet to find the level of performance that saw them reach the top four and stay there last season.

But the 26-year-old believes the play-offs are still within touching distance — as long as they can put together a string of results soon.

He added: “Looking at all the scores from last weekend there were some eye-openers. 

“The fact that any team can beat another is why it’s so important to get that wee run going, so that whenever teams around us are dropping points we can keep picking them up to make sure we stay in that play-off hunt.

“There’s very little between the likes of third and sixth in the Championship, so every result counts.”
