JUNIOR football tipsters Owen Scott and Paul Petrie have had no luck with the weather but most matches will survive this weekend – with the fourth and fifth round of the Scottish Cup being staged.
William Hill’s Owen has banked £15.27 this season while McBookie’s Paul is on £153.20 to £10 stakes. Here’s what the duo are on this weekend.
Owen writes: “Hopefully this is the week the Hurlford v Bo’ness match finally takes place. I’m sticking to my guns and taking holders Hurlford at 1-1 to win this tie and book a place in the next round of the Scottish Cup.
Next I’m taking Largs at 7-5 in a match that was switched to the Ayrshire side’s plastic pitch to ensure its played as they host Cumbernauld. This will be a difficult tie for Largs but I reckon they can get the three points which will see them move forward in their goal of remaining in the division.
My final match this week is in the fifth round of the Scottish Cup where I’m taking Musselburgh at 1-1 away to Fauldhouse. Musselburgh have been in good form of late and I reckon they will get the win to book themselves a spot in the quarter-finals.

Paul writes: First up I am going for Auchinleck to beat Bonnyrigg in the Scottish Cup at 4-9. While the Ayrshire giants could have landed an easier draw they will still be delighted with a home game and should be too strong.
Next I am backing Tayport to beat Bathgate at 9-10. As I said last week Tayport need to win these games if they are going to take the title and I fancy their chances.
Finally, I am taking a punt in Luncarty to beat Downfield at 7-2. They started the season as first and second favourites and there is no doubt Luncarty have been disappointing this season but this big game could see them raise their game.
