Home comforts should tilt the balance in Falkirk's favour

Artificial pitch gives Bairns the advantage

Irn-Bru Cup heroes Dundee United look set for disappointment

Ladbrokes Premiership playoff semi-final second leg
BT Sport 1, 7.45pm

Falkirk can complete the job and keep Dundee United down in the Ladbrokes Championship for another season.

The Bairns were the better side for large spells of the first leg of the semi-final at Tannadice this week, but had to settle for a 2-2 draw.

Falkirk boss Peter Houston played safe and never quite went for it and that's because he fancies his side strongly on their artificial pitch.

They've twice walloped United at home already this season and Ray McKinnon's side looked jittery every time Falkirk went up the park.

Falkirk will be desperate to reach a second Ladbrokes Premiership play-off Final in a row.
