Meanwhile, here is‘s Damian Walker with his first-scorer predictions for this weekend.

The three players we selected for first goals last weekend all saw their teams win but sadly our guys didn’t get on the scoresheet first. Hopefully we can have a little more luck this weekend.

On Saturday in the Championship shocks may be few and far between as the top five in the table play the bottom five. The most likely one of these games to go to a bottom half side is Dumbarton v Falkirk clash, when sixth take on fifth.

We have been with Dumbarton for the past two weekends and see no reason to desert them as they go in search of their third straight win or fourth in five games.

The Sons had a tough October and November playing Rangers and Hibs twice along with Hearts and Queen of the South but their last three wins have come against Livi, Alloa and Raith.

Back in September Dumbarton drew away to the Bairns and, on current form and with home advantage, they might be overpriced at 23-10 with McBookie at the time of writing. St Johnstone loanee Chris Kane had a couple of chances to open the scoring for the Sons last weekend before Scott Agnew’s goal, and as we said last week Kane has a great scoring record for Dumbarton

McBookie make Kane 13-2 to score the opening goal in front of the BBC Alba cameras on Saturday night.

In League One the big stories of the week were the departures of Jim Jefferies at Dunfermline and Ayr’s Mark Roberts. Both sides have underperformed in line with pre-season expectations but Ayr face the bigger problems sitting in second-bottom position in the table.

Stirling Albion prop up League One but seem to be improving (albeit not much) with narrow defeats to Peterhead and Forfar. The Binos are 1-6 with McBookie in the “to finish bottom market” but would you want to take them on this weekend with an Ayr side who have lost five on the spin and lost nine of their last 11.

And Ayr just happen to be odds on as well! So there could be some value about a Stirling Albion first scorer. Step forward Steven Doris has scored in his previous two starts and is 7-1 with McBookie to make it three in three with the game’s first goal.

In League Two with less than half the season gone three sides have slipped clear of the field. Arbroath, Queen’s Park and Albion Rovers are 13 or more points clear of the fourth-placed sides.

Of the trio Rovers could easily have been shorter in the betting at home to Montrose. Rovers are 16 points ahead of the Gable Endies and have a 31-goal better goal difference.

At the time of writing McBookie have Albion at 4-6. Maybe the compiler got his six and nine the wrong way round as few people would probably argue with odds of 4-9.

Anyway, Albion’s Scott Chaplain has been in fantastic scoring form of late and is 6-1 for the first goal.

Can you find a winner?
