Rangers Scottish

Hello and welcome

to our live coverage of the latest big match in the Scottish Championship.

This is actually Rangers' second Friday night date on the spin, having taken three points away in Kirkcaldy last weekend and ended a losing run that was on the verge of becoming an embarrassment for interim boss Kenny McDowall.

The Ibrox side looked solid, compact and a lot less frightened than they have in recent months, where they have won only six out of 14 games.

With every respect to Raith, they will face a far sterner test tonight in Falkirk, with the Bairns again believing that they are capable of gate-crashing the play-off spaces and winning promotion in the most fiercely-competitive of seasons.

Our live blog covers every kick of the action and starts at 7.15pm on Friday, February 27.

Another Friday night feast of football..

Here we go again folks with yet more Friday night Championship football.

It seems like only yesterday we were settling down to watch the action from Stark's Park where Rangers managed to get back to winning ways with a 2-1 win after a terrible run of results. Tonight, the Ibrox side face another tough match when they head to the Falkirk Stadium to take on Peter Houston's in-form side.

The Bairns are unbeaten in their last eight matches and currently sit just outside the play-off places in fifth place, with only goal difference separating them and Queen of the South.

Falkirk teamsheet..

The team's are out nice and early tonight at the Falkirk Stadium. Here's the starting line-up that Peter Houston will be hoping can earn the points to move his side into the play-offs..

Kenny McDowall has made three changes to the team who got a 2-1 victory over Raith Rovers last Friday night.

Marius Zaliukas, Lee Wallace and Lee McCulloch all miss out tonight leaving Kenny McDowall to give his defence a total shake-up.

Bilel Moshni returns into the centre of defence to partner Darren McGregor while Steven Smith will play on the left and Seb Faure on the right of the backline.

Lee Robinson retains his position between the sticks keeping Steve Simonsen, who is now free to play after his one-match ban, on the sidelines.

Big honour for Kris Boyd as he gets the captain's armband for tonight's match..

Kris Boyd will captain the team tonight in the absence of Lee McCulloch and vice captain Lee Wallace who miss out with injuries.

Peter Houston made some shrewd signings during the January transfer window adding the experienced duo, Mark Kerr and John Baird from their play-off rivals Queen of the South.

Someone's happy with Boyd getting the armband..

Kenny Miller slides in to score Rangers' third goal

Rangers have the upper hand over the Bairns this season having already won twice at the Falkirk Stadium, 2-0 in the Championship in August and 3-1 in a League Cup tie the following month.

The most recent encounter between the two sides saw the Gers win 4-0 at Ibrox back in November.

Couldn't agree more, nothing beats a Friday night game to get you set for the weekend..

After the unwelcome distraction of Champions League and Europa League, the eyes of the world's football fans turn to Falkirk v Rangers.
