Here is’s Damian Walker with his Saturday selections.

Damian writes: David Goodwillie did the business for this column last weekend as his vastly overpriced Clyde side registered their fifth straight win.

“And bookies still haven’t cottoned on to their improved form as they were initially chalked up at 7-2 to win away at Stirling in League Two this weekend.

“While bookies remain clueless about a resurgent Clyde punters are far more cluedin and forced those early odds into just 12-5.

“I would still argue that is still too big since the Bully Wee have beaten runaway pair Peterhead and Montrose during this winning streak.

“The Binos themselves are on a nice little run having won their last four but two of those were against whipping boys Cowdenbeath and another against second-bottom Edinburgh City.

“This game is too close to call for Stirling Albion to be 11-10 favourites so the value lies with the visitors despite their shortening odds.

“There seems little point digging around for a Clyde goalscorer other than Goodwillie as he has scored in all of Clyde’s five straight wins – seven in total. McBookie make him 9-2 to make it six games in a row with the first goal of the game.

“And like Clyde bookies haven’t noticed Forfar’s improvement in League One. The Loons have won three of their last five games and last weekend thrashed Stranraer 5-1.

“This run has taken them off the bottom and also out of the relegation play-off spot too into eighth. They travel to face Queen’s Park who occupy the bottom position in the table.

“The Spiders have won just one of their last eight League One matches and also lost four of their last five games. That isn’t the sort of form that makes them 11-10 favourites to beat an in-form Forfar side who can be backed at an over-priced 12-5.                                                                                                  

“Ross County’s Russell Dingwall joined Forfar in the January window and the young striker got off the mark last weekend in their easy win over Stranraer. Dingwall is 15-2 with McBookie to score the first goal.

“Finally, I was staggered to see the price offered about Hearts to win at Rangers this weekend. The Jambos, who have really tightened things up at the back under Craig Levein, are a massive 5-1 to win at Ibrox.

“Levein looks certain to try to limit Rangers’ attacking options and capitalise on the home side’s leaky defence which shipped three goals last weekend against second-bottom Hamilton. 

“Ten years ago Kyle Lafferty joined Rangers for £3million and scored 38 goals in his four years there but the striker joined Hearts on a free in the summer and has scored nine goals from 19 Premiership games this season. 

“Lafferty is 8-1 with McBookie to open the scoring against his former club.

“Can you find a winner!”
