SPFL League Two weekend preview – Saturday 3rd January 2015



There is already one game off – Elgin City v East Fife – so be wary, though at time of writing there are no pitch inspections planned for the other games. The league has taken a turn from the tightest battle in the SPFL to a very stretched out and interesting one. There is plenty over which to muse and debate but the only fight worth watching will begin on four pitches at 3pm today – weather permitting…

Match of the Day

Albion Rovers v Annan Athletic

Both teams won last weekend and it was the Wee Rovers who came away with the most impressive result – a 4-1 win away to East Stirlingshire. With only two places between them but thirteen points separating them this is a tie that typifies the league right now.  The home side are chasing Arbroath – six points ahead of them – whilst Annan are trying to stay ahead of a chasing pack behind them by maintaining a four point advantage. A win today for the visitors is therefore more about keeping the gap than catching their opponents. For the Coatbridge crew it is about trying to keep away from Queen’s Park – who are one point behind them – and catching Arbroath… By quarter to five I reckon Annan will be limping home having lost.

Arbroath v Montrose has a home side that is racking up very decent wins weekly. Montrose lost to Elgin last weekend and I cannot see it being much different for them today. Queen’s Park v Clyde has the home side, home for the first time in 13 months. They take the Hampden stage after their 0-0 draw away to Berwick last weekend and entertain a Clyde side that lost in the Borders to Annan. Clyde need some luck and I reckon they might get some today. Finally Berwick Rangers v East Stirlingshire has the Borderers hot off their draw to Queen’s Park whilst the Shire lost to Albion Rovers. It’s a very tricky tie to predict and form should be with Colin Cameron’s side – and that is who I reckon shall triumph…
