PAUL PETRIE landed his first treble of the year last week to extend his lead over rival junior football tipster Owen Scott.
The McBookie man went for Downfield, Dalkeith and Penicuik and the treble paid £65.63 to a £10 stake.
Paul takes his winnings this season to £218.83 to £10 stakes while Owen remains on £15.13. Here’s what the duo are on this weekend.
Owen writes: “Last week was same story as always. I checked the full-time results and thought I was in with a chance as the ones I thought were dodgy came in only for the side I thought would win with little problems to let me down.
“This weekend I’ll try again and I’m starting with a Scottish Junior Cup quarter-final and I’m taking Musselburgh at 11-10 to beat Penicuik in the all-East Region affair. I reckon home advantage will help Musselburgh here as they aim for a semi-final spot.
“Although I vowed not to take my own side again I’m confident Cumnock 13-8 can get a win this week in their battle for survival. Arthurlie head to Townhead Park and I believe it will be three points for the home side.
“Finally I’m taking another tough game and I’m on Newtongrange at 6-4 in their top-of-the table clash with Kelty. Whoever wins this will feel confident they can lift the title this season.”

Paul writes: First up I am going for Rob Roy to beat Thorniewood at 8-15. They have only played 13 games so are playing catch-up which could end up costing them promotion but this is a winnable game.
Next I am taking a punt on Girvan to beat Craigmark also at 8-15. With a goal difference of minus 70 and just six points in the league it seems a mad decision but both teams are rotten and Girvan seem to have hit some form.
Finally, I am on Armadale at 8-13 to beat North End in the DJ Laing Cup. North End have been struggling in recent weeks and although Armadale are at the wrong end of the Super League they should be strong enough.
