The Dundee United match could be the perfect one to bring Falkirk back to form, according to ex-Dundee striker Rory Loy.
The Bairns are without a win in five league matches and come up against fellow promotion favourites United on Saturday.
He said: “Of course United will be tough, but it maybe takes a game like that to get the crowd going, to get the players going and to get the confidence back with a win.”
Loy has confessed that confidence has been dented by picking up just two points from a possible 15 to sit joint-bottom of the Championship.
He added: “When you’re on a run like this, some boys’ confidence can dip and be a bit low.
“I think the boys believe we’re good enough to be at the right end of the table. We’ve got a good enough squad.
“But talk’s cheap, we need to start doing it on the pitch. We need to do it for 90 minutes.”
