Falkirk compensation case suffers delay of three weeks

Falkirk must wait for a further three weeks before the Court for Arbitration for Sport (CAS) rules on their case against Bradford City.

The SPFL Championship side are adamant that they are due compensation for striker Mark Stewart who moved to Bradford three years ago.

The CAS was due to pass their judgment today, only for a backlog of cases to force a postponement. It is the latest frustration for Falkirk who have already been given the support of FIFA, who instructed Bradford to pay £220,000.

"The explanation is a backlog of cases and pressure of work," said David White, Falkirk's general manager. "It's out of our hands."
