Having been the most competitive league in Scotland it has now descended into a damp squib though there are at least 2 games today with lots to fight over…
Match of the Day
Peterhead v Stirling Albion
By a short head this qualifies because I think Jim McInally has one eye on having a good end to the season. The Binos meanwhile need the win to maintain their end of year party atmosphere and stay in the playoff spot. Peterhead beat Albion Rovers last Saturday whilst Stirling drew 2-2 at home with Elgin that was hardly a great result for them. I do think that the visitors shall upset the promotion atmosphere at Balmoor and keep in 4th spot.
Queen’s Park v Berwick Rangers has the team that wants Stirling to slip up, facing the bottom of the league side for whom next season simply cannot come quick enough. The Spiders drew with Annan last Saturday whilst Berwick beat East Stirlingshire 1-0. I believe that the Borderers shall get the win and keep the pressure on Stirling Albion. Montrose v Annan Athletic sees a home side that lost to Clyde face 2nd placed Annan who drew with Queen’s Park. Annan for me shall continue their march towards playoff form and beat Montrose.
Clyde v Albion Rovers has a Clyde side that beat Montrose last weekend and are 1 point away from playoff safety playing a wee Rovers side who have cup memories to keep them warm during the summer but have disappointment etched in their faces from their league campaign; they lost to Peterhead last Saturday. This weekend I expect Clyde shall take all 3 points and the playoff spot shall be theirs. Finally Elgin City v East Stirlingshire has a home side that drew with Stirling Albion facing an East Stirlingshire team that lost to Berwick Rangers. It’s been a miserable season towards the end for Shire fans and mainly because the beginning promised so much more. As John Coughlin leaves they, like Montrose too, are facing the issue of who comes in to take the club forward next season. As for today I fancy more misery for the visitors.
