Concern over expected low attendance for Scottish Cup semi-final

Falkirk and Dunfermline meet in the Scottish Cup semi-final at Hampden on Sunday with an expected crowd of only 14,000 for the 52,000 capacity stadium. The SFA have been criticised for holding semi-finals at Hampden when there is so little demand for tickets but both Falkirk and Dunfermline were offered the chance to switch the game elsewhere.

SFA chief Gordon Smith told the Scottish Sun: "Both clubs agreed on the game going ahead at Hampden. It is disappointing to be looking at the possibility of such a low crowd.

"The figure of less than 14,000 is below the expectation of both clubs when we had the initial talks."
