GREG by his own admission had a shocker last week but it’s his first of the season.
He says: “Hopefully it’s at least another three week to my next bad day. Derby would have stung a lot of people last night and it was a surprise to see low-scoring affairs in Holland. Sticking close closer to home today and focusing on the Scottish card.”
Forfar v Elgin
It’s two former St Johnstone stars at the helm as they two meet at Station Park. Jim Weir has done a terrific job at Elgin, narrowly missing out on promotion last season and have started brightly again in this campaign.
One thing that will need to be addressed is their away form. Almost every away game for them is a trek and if it hadn’t been for their poor away form they would have got promoted.
Forfar have adapted well to life in League 2 and bar a hammering against Dundee they’ve been terrific. They have managed to keep talisman Gavin Swankie and Gary Bollan has got them playing like title winners. Should be a cracking game but taking Forfar to maintain their 100 per cent start to the season.
Back Forfar 1-1 () (NAP)
Three matches I’m taking there to be goals in:
Celtic v Aberdeen
Hibs v Morton
Stenhousemuir v Airdrie
Over 2.5 goals treble 3-1
Newcastle entertain Brighton in the teatime kick-off – will be on the usual late goal to be scored.
