The top of the league has a high-flying Forfar Athletic looking good and making waves. There is no doubt that they are there on merit and the surprise package of the season so far is looking good to hang on in there for some time to come. That having been said, there is a massive test today as … my …
Match of the Day
Dunfermline Athletic v Forfar Athletic
The top two battle it out at East End Park and it would have taken a very sage and wise man to have predicted this top two paring at the beginning of the year. The Pars managed to despatch Ayr United last Friday night and will be looking to continue their upward spiral whilst the Loons fired three past the Warriors and are also building momentum. It makes this clash even spicier. I reckon it will be a tight game as the Loons are playing with confidence but the time is now for big players within big squads to stand up and be counted; I believe that there shall be no need for an abacus at Dunfermline.
Brechin City v Stranraer sees the home side licking some wounds after a 4-0 thumping from Airdrie last weekend. The Blues have the manager of the month’s curse hanging over them and narrowly lost out in the Petrofac Semi Final on penalties last weekend. For me this will probably be a home win. Greenock Morton v Ayr United has a home side on form against visitors who are sliding. The Ton beat the Binos last weekend and I reckon should add the Honest Men’s scalp today.
Peterhead v Airdrieonians has a home side that was idle last weekend against a visiting team that finally found a decent result. The Blue Toon sit in sixth against the Diamond’s eighth with three points between them. I reckon Gary Bollan’s side will close that gap today. Finally Stirling Albion v Stenhousemuir has the bottom two scrapping for the points. Both lost convincingly last weekend so this could set the second quarter of the season up badly or well for either dependent upon how each squad responds to losing last time out. I think the home side may have the most resilience today.
