Know the Ref - Falkirk away

Last updated : 13 October 2009 By Stuart Gillespie
He did two of our games - one at Parkhead and one at Rugby Park. Celtic gubbed us 7-0, we had a man sent off and conceded a penalty. Kilmarnock beat us 2-1 and we had a goal disallowed in the last minute as we edged towards the SPL trap door, although we gave it a good kick to make sure it was shut a few days later.

Things were slightly better in 2007/08. We beat Killie, with a last minute goal, and drew with Aberdeen. The latter game saw David Barron correctly sent off. We also lost 1-0 to Caley Thistle with Mr Allan in charge, Will Haining perhaps harshly sent off. The only other game with this official that shows up in Soccerbase is a 1-1 draw with St. Johnstone back in 2003.

There are only five Falkirk games involving Mr Allan to discuss, none of which are notable. Last season there was a defeat at Pittodrie and an away draw with Motherwell. The season before there was a draw with Aberdeen and an amusing defeat to Gretna, while 2006/07 saw a draw with Caley Thistle. And that's it.

So, with this official in charge, Saints and Falkirk have managed one win between them. Get your money on a draw then!
