Sunday's Ramsdens Cup final between Falkirk and Hamilton Academical is to be broadcast live on BBC Alba.

Coverage of the match at Livingston's Braidwood Motor Company Stadium begins on the television channel at 1600 BST, with kick-off five minutes later.

Falkirk have won the Challenge Cup four clubs below the Scottish Premier League on three occasions, the last in 2005.

First Division rivals Hamilton have lifted the trophy twice, but their last success came in 1993.

The two finalists are separated by two points in the league table, with Falkirk in third and Accies a place behind.

Hamilton have yet to beat the Bairns in their three meetings so far this season, with Steven Pressley's side having won twice and held Billy Reid's team in the other.

Their last meeting was in February, when Darren Dods' header won the match at Accies' New Douglas Park.

Falkirk have beaten one First Division side on their way to the final, while Accies have had to defeat three.

The Bairns reached the final with a 3-0 win over Third Division side Annan Athletic after having disposed of Brechin City, Dundee and East Fife.

Accies prevented First Division rivals Livingston reaching the final with a 1-0 victory, having previously beaten Queen's Park, Partick Thistle and Morton.
