UNLIKE its Carling Cup counterparts, the League Cup in Scotland usually goes to form.

I don't expect many shocks in Tuesday's games with maybe Aberdeen at home to Dundee looking in trouble while not many people would back toothless Hibs at best odds of 2-9 against anyone. They face Berwick by the way.

With all teams likely to be close to full strength it's more about form than strength of squad and that should make it easier to pick winners.

Let's start with SPL new boys Dunfermline who are flying high in fourth place after successive 1-0 away wins at St Johnstone and Dundee United.

They travel to local rivals East Fife and should win well against the Second Division side. The Pars are 4-6 at Ladbrokes, Chandler and others.

There is another derby when St Mirren travel to Morton. The SPL side beat their First Division rivals in pre-season at home but this will be much tougher.

Saints' fans won't forgive boss Danny Lennon if he rests players and they lose to their fiercest rivals. Striker Nigel Hasselbaink returns after a ban and he could run riot. Take Saints at 1-1 with William Hill and Ladbrokes.

Raith Rovers are also 1-1 (various) for their trip to Airdrie. Rovers have started the season well while Airdrie are struggling in Division Two having conceded seven in two games.

Complete a fourfold with Hamilton at home to Ross County in the all-First Division tie. Accies thumped County 5-0 in the league and remain unbeaten this season.

County are slowly improving but I can't see them avoiding defeat here. Hamilton are 4-5 with William Hill.
