Here is McBookie’s Damian Walker’s first-scorer tips for this weekend. He writes: We’ve been with Elgin a couple of times in 2015 and there’s no reason to ditch a winning formula, after all it is not as if there have been that many to choose from this season.

The Black and Whites have won six league games this year and that run has taken them to within four points of the play-offs with a game in hand. That’s a far cry from their form towards the end of 2014, when one win from 16 games saw them rooted to the foot of the League Two table.

Elgin entertain second-placed Queen’s Park at Borough Briggs but at the time of writing can be backed at 85-40 whereas the Spiders are 5-4 favourites.

On current form and with home advantage I would have made this more a 6-4 each of two game so the value ought to lie with Elgin. Craig Gunn and Shane Sutherland have been the men scoring most of Elgin’s goals this season but Brian Cameron has scored in each of the last three games and is clearly hitting form. Cameron is 10-1 with McBookie to score the first goal of the game.

And we’re staying in League Two for the second selection as another team improving hand over fist and probably overlooked by most bookies are East Stirling. The Shire sit third bottom with a goal difference of -20 and in December and January had a stinking run losing seven of their eight matches.

But since then they have turned things around in no uncertain terms and in their last six league games they have won four, drawn one and lost one.

David McKenna has scored 12 goals this season and is also on the pens for East Stirling. Bookies make visitors East Fife favourites for this game but the value may lie with McKenna at 5-1 to grab the first goal at McBookie.

If you’re a Forfar fan then the last couple of months have been a bit of a rollercoaster ride and if you’ve followed them as a punter then you have my sympathy. Forfar have been consistently inconsistent. Since January 24 their form figures read: WLWLWLWL.

If they are to continue that ridiculous sequence they should beat Stranraer at home on Saturday. While I’m siding with the Loons it isn’t because of the sequence but because I think they are better judged on their fantastic 2-0 away win at Morton last Saturday than the defeat to Peterhead in midweek when they were reduced to 10 men.

Forfar’s Gavin Swankie has scored nine goals this season including one in midweek and hopefully he can grab the first goal on Saturday at 11-2 with McBookie.

Can you find a winner this weekend?
