BERWICK are battling hard to make sure today's Scottish Cup clash with Celtic goes ahead – but it's more about earning a buck than making a killing.

There were a raft of shocks down south yesterday but there's no way the current Berwick side will write themselves into folklore the way their 1967 predecessors did by beating Rangers.

Celtic travel to Shielfield as 1-8 favourites with Betfred and should be looking at a convincing win against the outsiders who are as big as 20-1 with William Hill and 888sport.

The Hoops, a biggest 2-1 with Stan James to lift the Cup, won 7-0 against their rivals when they last met in the 1997-98 League Cup.

I don't think they'll notch as many today but one bet that appeals is Partybets 18-5 for Neil Lennon's men to record a 4-0, 5-0 or 6-0 victory.

Georgios Samaras, double hero in last week's Old Firm clash, is 11-5 with William Hill to net the first combined with an away win.

On the handicaps it's 11-10 Celtic minus two with boylesports while a 1-0 Berwick win pays 70-1 with Paddy Power.

Freddie Ljungberg could make his Celtic debut and the Swede is 5-4 with Hills to score at any time, 5-1 to net first and 6-1 to bag two or more.

Berwick top scorer Darren Gribben was playing junior football last season and now faces Celtic in front of the Sky cameras. He is 6-1 to complete the dream with a goal.

However the Wee Gers haven't scored against Celtic in four previous meetings and are 5-2 with William Hill to net at any time.

Berwick are 6-1 with Hills to score first while Celtic are 1-12 with the prices the same to grab the last strike.

The early kick-off sees Dundee take on Motherwell and there's a real chjance of a shock.

The First Division men, 11-5 with William Hill, are unbeaten since going into administration in November and are playing with genuine heart as they try to beat the drop after a 25-point deduction.

Motherwell are in freefall after the departure of boss Craig Brown to Aberdeen and new boss Stuart McCall hasn't had time to make his mark as well as losing top scorer Nick Blackman who has returned to parent club Blackburn.

The Fir Park men are a biggest 5-4 with Ladbrokes and bet365 while the draw pays 5-2 at 888sport.
