As well as progress in the League Cup, the Bairns will be hoping to get out of League One at the fourth time of asking and have former Hearts boss John McGlynn in the dugout. For Hibs, it will be improving on last season's bottom six placing and challenging for Europe.

Anything else

"We had some battles with them back in the Championship. It will be strange going back but I enjoyed our games and I quite like playing on the astroturf as well.”

Hibs stalwart Lewis Stevenson was making reference to the frequent meetings of the clubs between 2014 and 2017 when the teams met 15 times over a period of around two-and-a-half years. As well as league games it includes a win for Falkirk at Easter Road in the Scottish Cup and victory in an exciting play-off.
