Falkirk and Hibernian served up a real treat in the first leg on Tuesday night.
That game finished 2-2 but Hibs can feel a little aggrieved at not taking a lead to The Bairns’ home leg. The Hibees were sensational in the second half and had a stonewall penalty denied that could have made it 3-1 and given this game a very different complexion. As it stands it’s all to play for and Friday 13th will turn out to be unlucky for one of these sides.
If Hibs can reach the performance levels they did at points in the second half on Tuesday Falkirk might find it very hard to live with. But Falkirk have lived with everything the season has thrown at them and have an uncanny knack of doing just enough to see the job through.
Their home form is incredible although Hibs did get a win the last time the teams met here. That result hinged on a dodgy penalty award in Hibs’ favour and it may just take that little bit of luck to decide this one.
