Falkirk hope to land a £230,000 windfall today when they should finally get closure on the quest for compensation for the transfer of Mark Stewart nearly three years ago.

The Court of Arbitration for Sport is scheduled to reveal their ruling on the case following an appeal launched by Bradford City to dispute FIFA's decision to award Falkirk a £250,000 transfer fee. Stewart was out of contract when he left for Bradford in July 2011 and made only eight starts before being loaned to Hamilton Accademical in January 2012 and allowed to leave for Dundee only 12 months into his two-year deal.

Falkirk claimed they were due a development fee for bringing Stewart, now with Derry City, through the ranks for over five years.
