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

He says: This is the last column of the year (cheers ring out across the land). The first half of the 2014-15 season has been a case of missed opportunities, woeful decision-making and poor judgement, but enough of the SPFL chief executive Neil Doncaster … we’re looking to end the year on a high with some winners.

Most weeks we have been on the money getting the right team to win or score first but not the right player. Doh! And before a ball was kicked we were against Livingston and suggested they were one for the drop and bottom spot for which McBookie now make them 1-5.

The Lions haven’t been helped by their points deduction but one win in their last 15 speaks volumes. And a home game against runaway Championship leaders Hearts is hardly likely to improve Livi’s plight in the short term.

Hearts have been banging in the goals this season and their league tally of 43 gives them a 2.7 goals-a-game average.

Jambos striker James Keatings has benefited from the injury to striker Osman Sow and is getting regular starts and as a result has been among the goals.

In a game in which it is difficult to see Livi having too many chances Keatings is 3-1 to score the opening goal with McBookie.

While we were bang on the money this season so far with Livi we expected more from Dunfermline after their fantastic season in 2013-14 and the addition of quality signings such as Michael Moffat.

Sadly for punters who backed them ante-post the only reason they are still favourites is because of ante-post liabilities. Given a clean slate we’d have Stranraer ahead of them.

Jim Jefferies has now gone and Moffat’s last league goal was on September 13. They are a team to take on at present and Brechin, who are unbeaten in 10, fit the bill this weekend.

Brechin entertain the Pars at Glebe Park and City’s Andy Jackson looks like a man to follow. The Scots-born Irish striker (much the same as Aidan McGeady without the Premier League cash) is in good form with four goals from his last three matches.

Jackson is 11-2 with McBookie to continue Dunfermline’s poor run by scoring the game’s first goal.

Moving into League Two and if you were part of the Brian McQueen Clyde gamble last weekend well done (through gritted teeth).

McQueen had scored zero goals in 47 games for Clyde and suddenly we start seeing money for the defender to score at anytime at 8-1 against East Fife.

Of course for those in the know he wasn’t going to be playing in defence but as a striker for the first time and McQueen notched in the 55th minute. Ouch.

By all accounts he was good up top and looked a natural. McQueen is 7-1 with McBookie to score the first goal of Clyde’s away game with Annan this weekend.

Can you find a winner?

      Darren, I fancy Accies tomorrow as Killie are poor. If u want to guarantee profit tho, Double chance Killie/draw is best price 11-20 with bet365 which means if u put £3000 on it you’d win £1650 profit if accies don’t win.
      Other option is letting it run and if Accies take the lead the cover will be a lot cheaper

    While it’s difficult to see past Keatings for the 1st goalscorer.
    If Callum Paterson starts up front again as he did on Tuesday night, the 12/1 on him is too good to miss.
