After the win in Inverness in the last SPL fixture there is renewed hope in the Pars ranks.  There is real belief that the six point gap from St Mirren can be closed and of course it would help if that could start on Saturday in Lanarkshire.  The Paisley side will be at the Falkirk Stadium and it will be rare occasion where Pars fans will be routing for their auld enemy.
