Here is McBookie’s Damian Walker’s first-scorer tips for this weekend. He writes: It’s the Challenge Cup Final on Sunday and the bookies just can’t seem to separate the two teams.

Everywhere you look it is 6-4 each of two apart from the needy and greedy with bigger margins going 7-5 each of two!

Livingston’s 2-2 draw at Alloa last weekend seems to confirm there isn’t much between these two sides. But even without Barry Smith in charge I favour Alloa to come out on top based on some of their big-game results this campaign.

Which leads me to a quiz question: Which non-Rangers player has scored more Championship goals this season at Ibrox than Kris Boyd?

Amazingly it is Alloa’s Liam Buchanan who has two Ibrox Championship goals to Boyd’s one and is enjoying a great season with 14 goals.

Buchanan, like many forwards, has scored his goals in streaks and netted seven times on the bounce in October and November before going on a 14-game barren run.

But the forward has started another run with four goals in his last three games and is 6-1 with McBookie to score in his fourth game in a row with the opener.

In the Championship we tipped up in-form Raith and in-form midfielder Lewis Vaughan to score the opener at big odds against Hibs last weekend.

The law of sod meant he scored the winner and not the opening goal. Anyway, with Rovers creeping up the table and Vaughan banging in the goals it makes sense to stick with him for the first goal against a shot-shy Falkirk side who have not scored more than a solitary goal in their last seven matches.

In fact the Bairns have netted three goals in their last 270 minutes of football and two of those were against Cowdenbeath and the other Dumbarton.

In League One the title race is still wide open with just five games remaining and McBookie bet 5-4 Morton, 2-1 Stranraer and 5-2 Forfar.

Morton, on the face of it, have the toughest looking game out of the trio with their home clash against fourth-placed Brechin. Closer inspection shows Brechin are without a win in six games and have shipped 10 goals in their last four.

That is not the sort of form you want to be taking to Cappielow and Morton could be a lot shorter than their current quote of 4-5. Aberdeen loanee Declan McManus has scored six goals in eight games since returning from Pittodrie for a second loan spell this season and McManus is 4-1 with McBookie to open the scoring.

Can you find a winner this weekend?
