Wouldn't really call it a howler. Sarkic goes to block the shot for the Falkirk play but the Falkirk scuffs it so has to readjust himself as the ball blooms up into the air. Getting back to his feet he should have probably punched the ball rather than tried to catch it.
That being said McMillan should have got in-between the Falkirk player and the goal instead of trying hard to give away a penalty. Likewise Sammon was unmarked and yet both Lithgow and Pepe were within a few feet of him.
Sarkic made the wrong choice but he wasn't alone.
More than anything I think we need another defender. With Devlin and Odoffin injured I was really concerned when it looked like Pepe had picked up a knock in the first half or even the time when Lamie got tackled at chest height about 15 minutes into the game. We had literally no-one to replace them. Well actually that's not entirely true; we've still got Henk Van Schaik but he hasn't appeared in any of the friendlies despite making the trip to the training camp and being at the Alloa game as a spectator - maybe he's also injured?
