    Good night.

    Almost time for me to go. We'll be back for Sunday's second leg.

  4. Falkirk manager Peter Houston

    "Happy to get the result. I felt we were fortunate to win 1-0. I think there's lots of lessons for our players to learn. We've got our goalkeeper to thank for a great save. The boys, again, we showed great character."

    Falkirk manager Peter Houston
  5. Kilmarnock manager Lee Clark

    "Absolutely dreadful goal. The way it was scored was schoolboy stuff. I'm frustrated. I would've been okay with a 0-0, not delighted - I came here to win - but to be behind with a goal like that is terrible. We've got to dust ourselves down now and go again and score two goals at least to win it."

    SMS Message: How many scoring chances did killie need to wrap up this match? I'm not a killie fan but that was blatant robbery by Falkirk tonight. Also another diabolical pen denial in the 1st half! Why? A player does not need to fall down in order for the pen to be given! from Benji, Edinburgh
