Lewis Kidd insists Falkirk ‘believe’ they can get win over Hibs to narrow gap at top of Championship


LEWIS KIDD is confident Falkirk can spark a late title charge into life with a win against Hibs.

The Bairns currently sit seven points adrift of the league leaders and, having played a game more, manager Peter Houston has confessed that defeat would leave them with too much ground to make up in the run-in.

But Kidd insists he and his team-mates will head to Easter Road determined they can drag themselves to within touching distance of the capital outfit.

He said: “It’s a massive game. We all know that and we will all be prepared for it.

“It could be narrowed down to four or it could go to 10.

“We are prepared and we believe we can go there and get the result we need. We are all looking forward to it.

“If we lose it would be a lot harder to catch them but I’m not going to say it would be done and dusted.

“We would just take each game as it comes and if we go about our own business then hopefully we will get the results we need.

“We’re not far away from Hibs. We know our strengths and we know we have a strong squad.


“Hibs are doing well but we’ve dropped points in a few games where we shouldn’t have dropped points. So we could have been even closer to them.

“We’ve just got to keep going and try and catch them.”

Falkirk have not lost in their last six matches at Easter Road, stretching back to 2009.

And Kidd, who has started the last three matches for the Bairns, believes being on the road will suit Houston’s side.

The 22-year-old said: “We’ve been better away from home in our recent run of form. I don’t know why that is, exactly, but we have been.

“It will be difficult at Easter Road but maybe being away from home will help us. It will be a big atmosphere but we feel we can go there and get a result.”
