IT’S Grand National weekend and all eyes will be on Aintree at 4.15pm on Saturday.

But while the focus is south of the border I've been quietly hunting down a winning treble.

There will no doubt be a few donkeys running at Aintree (and my girlfriend isn't one of them) but hopefully I can avoid any hurdles and come up with a winning line.

With the season nearing an end there could well be many meaningless games ahead but I'm concentrating on a league where there is still much to play for.

So I start in the Second Division with Airdrie’s home clash against Brechin in a match the Diamonds are desperate to win as they look to earn a play-off place.

Airdrie go into this clash only five points ahead of Brechin but after winning their last five on the bounce they will be confident of picking up all three points against a side who have only two triumphs in their last six games.

Brechin are undefeated against Airdrie this season but I reckon that can change this weekend and I'm tipping the Lanarkshire side to win at a tempting 19-20 with William Hill.

I'm staying in the Second Division and focusing on Arbroath’s home clash with Forfar. The Gayfield men are still dreaming of winning the title after beating leaders Cowdenbeath last weekend.

They are still four points behind Beath and know they must win all of their remaining games to have any chance of finishing up champions.

This weekend they will certainly fancy their chances against a Loons side they are 26 points ahead of in the table and who they have already defeated 4-1 and 4-2 this season. Go for an Arbroath win at 7-10 with Paddy Power.

I finish up with on-form East Fife and their home clash with Albion Rovers. Since former Scotland star Gordon Durie took the reins the Fifers have been on fire and are undefeated in their last four games with three wins and a draw to their name in that time.

This weekend they will look to boost their chances of winning a play-off spot and will be full of belief against a Rovers side they are 12 points ahead of in the table..

Durie’s boys will be hoping for a repeat of the 2-0 win they earned the last time Rovers visited and are worth backing at 10-11 with Paddy Power and William Hill.

    must agree Scott, think Airdrie are a very tempting price, Brechin lost at home last week to bottom club Stirling

    Sounds a shooty in treble. I will be on these 3 and add another 2 or 3 as I again chase the dream!!

    Livingston10/11 at home to Ayr

      Willie, I like the treble. Not sure about Hamilton.

  3. Willie McGuire 12 years ago

    Hamilton have been frustrating this season, but I just think Evs at home against an equally average morton side is decent. Im on the treble, and throwing in another 2. Livi under the Hughes/Collins factor are good value and I’ll take your reservations on board. Burnley 10/11 nxt on my list.

    Anyway When are you wanting this golf lesson! Im flexible work wise and the light nights are coming in! As we’re both bettin men £ a hole and I dont buy that handicap patter you’re giving me. Im 3, and I would like honesty from ye :)

      Willie, Hamilton’s form has dipped since the cup final and that’s a worry for me.
      Got a couple of games of golf in this week but had the boy in tow and that’s always a distraction. Honestly, my long game is as poor as my short game is good. I think I’ve taken the old putt for dough, drive for show adage too far.

    Where are you playing?

    • Mr Fixit 12 years ago

      Willie, my club is Clober (perfect for the short game) and I had a game at the smaller Dalmahoy course last week where my pal is a member.

    East Fife 0-2 down at HT.
