SCOTTISH international football's at a low point after Gordon Strachan's men became the first European side to be knocked out of the World Cup.
Failure was on the cards from the time we started with home draws against Serbia and Macedonia so Scotland are odds on to finish bottom of Group A and fail to win a game in a campaign for the first time in their history.
Scotland's fall from grace to disgrace will be much debated at grounds such as Central Park and Glebe Park but at East End Park the only topic of conversation will be Dunfermline's fight for survival.
The famous club, once managed by the legendary Jock Stein, are teetering on the brink and today have applied to enter administration.
Players have battled on bravely in the face of adveersity but it must be tough for them to do their job. I remember how the situation affected Rangers last season and tonight the call must be for a Falkirk away win.
The Bairns have been pretty inconsistent under Alex Smith since Steven Pressley left for Coventry and have lost their last two games to nil.
However, the sides are closely matched with one win each and a draw in three meetings this season. Falkirk are boosted by the return for Kieran Duffie and keeper Michael McGovern from international duty and I can see them taking advantage of Pars' problems and edging a win.
Dumbarton fought back from 3-1 down at Dunfermline at the weekend to win 4-3 and boost their hopes of avoiding the drop. Most of their best results have come away from home with their last two results at the BetButler being 3-0 and 2-0 defeats.
Home form doesn't inspire confidence in the Sons even though they look tempting at 5-2 with bet365 and BetVictor. Rovers have lost just one in six and Dumbarton draw no bet at 29-20 with BetVictor could be the way to go.
Previous meetings this season have finished 2-2 and 3-2 to Raith so both teams to score is likely but pays no more than 8-13 at Stan James.
Partick Thistle will go top of the First Division with a win at Cowdenbeath and confidence will be sky high after Saturday's 6-1 thumping of Livingston. That was Alan Archibald's first match in charge after a successful caretaker stint that saw the Jags win five on the bounce.
This match originally was abandoned due to fog with Cowdenbeath leading 2-1 so Thistle will have to be at their best to bag the win and should be up to the task as they hunt for a fourth win of the season against the Fifers.
Beath's last five have seen both teams to score and of course that was the case in the game stopped after about 70 minutes. Thistle had kept five clean sheets before coneding to Livi at the weekend but could struggle to shut out a side that's hit five in two games. Again look at both teams to score at 10-11 with Coral.
Chris Erskine has been Thistle's start turn in recent weeks and is 13-8 to score at anytime. Experienced striker Steven Craig is 11-10 favourite.
The other First Division game between Livingston and Hamilton has been postponed.
However, the Second Division clash between Brechin and Queen of the South goes on with the match switched to Station Park, Forfar.
That should play into the hands of leaders Queens who are 5-6 at Coral as they bid to have the trophy wrapped up before their Ramsdens Cup Final against Partick on April 7.
SFL top scorer Nicky Clark of Queens is also worth backing at 4-1 with McBookie.com to net first and is 11-10 to hit the target at anytime.
