A COUPLE of weeks ago I advised to back against Stirling at every opportunity.

The Forthbank side have duly lost every game since and now trail Dundee who were handed a 25-point penalty for going into administration.

However, they have a new boss in the shape of experience ex-Dundee gaffer Jocky Scott. And they put on an improved show as they lost just 1-0 at home to Dundee at the weekend.

But a trip to Queen of the South won't improve Scott's mood. Queens hammered Morton 4-0 at the weekend and look on the up. They are 4-9 with Stan James and totesport to beat Stirling – so get on now.

Dundee's long unbeaten run will be put to the test at leaders Raith. Late goals gave Dee a recent home over the Fifers and it promises to be just as tight.

So close in fact that I can't predict a winner so I'll take a perch on the fence. The draw pays
5-2 at Ladbrokes and totesport.

Dunfermline will hope to win at Ross County but the Highlanders will be lifted by the arrival of Jimmy Caldwerwood as boss.

Caldo has great experience in charge of sides such as Dunfermline, Aberdeen and Kilmarnock and I reckon he can start by taking a point. The draw is 13-5 with Ladbrokes and Coral.

In Division Two, Dumbarton entertain Peterhead just three days after beating them away. Normally this would suggest a home win but the Sons, my 5-2 Super Single last weekend, have been better on the road.

They have won four on the bounce away but only one in five at Strathclyde Homes Stadium so beware. This could be a draw at 5-2 with William Hill and Chandler.

Livingston can virtually wrap up the title by winning at closest rivals Brechin. The leaders wobbled at the weekend before beating Stenhousemuir but will storm 14 points clear at the top with victory at Glebe Park.

I think they'll do it and are worth a shout at 5-4 with Paddy Power and totesport.

Livi recently went to title rivals Ayr and won 3-0 and with the likes of Kenny Deuchar and Robbie Winters providing attacking nous I can see them picking up another three points.

Queen's Park could be best bets at home to Annan after a run of six wins in seven. Annan haven't won a league game in midweek and could still be waiting after their trip to Hampden.

The Glasgow amateurs are a very reasonable 13-10 with Ladbrokes and William Hill.

Clyde have won one and drawn at home since Jim Duffy took charge. It's a tall order to beat Albion Rovers but I'm risking it at 11-5 with Ladbrokes and Chandler.
