I'M hoping the festive card gets off to a bang with loads of goals on Boxing Day.

My both teams to score fivefold starts with Bolton v Newcastle in the Premier League.

Owen Scott's side got the win they needed against Blackburn last weekend and should go into the home clash with Newcastle in better spirits.

I reckon they could get a result against a Newcastle outfit who have gone off the boil since the loss of the likes of Steven Taylor.

Newcastle haven't won in six and suffered a 3-2 defeat at home to West Brom. They do possess one of the best strikers in the EPL in Demba Ba and I'd expect him to hit the target at the Reebok.

However, with some of the pressure off Bolton should produce a better display and at least score.

Next I'm on Leicester v Ipswich in the Championship. This coud be a cracker between two sides whose games have produced plenty of goals in recent weeks.

Ipswich netted five on their last outing at Barnsley after trailing 2-0 and have arrested a slump with two wins on the bounce. Even when they were struggling they were scoring goals so they should hit the target against a Leicester side who have netted in their last six games.

Next I'm on Bristol Rovers v Plymouth in League Two. Rovers' last four have featured both to score with a total of 16 goals. Plymouth are unbeaten in three and both sides have hit the target in five of their last six.

Now it's up to Scotland and to the big First Division clash between Falkirk and Ross County.

Third-placed Falkirk really need a win to close the gap between them and leaders County. It should be a belter and I expect it to be a scoring draw. The Bairns banged in five at Queen of the South last time out and boast 17-goal Farid El Alagui in their ranks.

County have been the best side in the First Division for the last couple of months and have netted 15 in previous five.

As I said before I'm sticking with Airdrie until one of their games doesn't feature both teams scoring. The prolific Diamonds head to Forfar who have scored nine in four.

Airdrie's last six have produced an amazing 37 goals so I'm sticking with both to score at Station Park.

      George, Blackpool were in my aways and sometimes I don’t like taking them for both teams to score and also the away because it means my selection has to score at least two. I was happy with my selections and in the end it was nine out of 10 teams scoring.
