PETERHEAD can pile on the pressure of Bonnyrigg Rose's survival hopes with a win in East Lothian this week.

While the League Two title flag is on its way to Stenhousemuir, there's a huge dogfight at the bottom for survival to avoid the relegation play-offs.

The bottom place team meet the ultra-ambitious winners of the Highland and Lowland League ties and the loser tends never to be seen again in senior football – see Cowdenbeath, Berwick Rangers, Albion Rovers, East Stirling, Brechin City etc.

Bonnyrigg of course won promotion themselves a couple of years ago but have found the going tough this season and panicked a couple of weeks ago by pulling the plug on the longest-serving manager in Scotland, Robbie Horn and replacing him with Cowdenbeath's Calum Elliot.

But they are plummeting, having gone ten games without a win now.

Peterhead went through a sticky patch of their own but they are unbeaten in four having claimed draws at Stenhousemuir and in-form East Fife.

And the Blue Toon look like bankers to win at New Dundas Park at a nice price of 6/5.

In the same league, CLYDE can win their biggest win of the season against Stranraer at 11/10 in a massive game between the bottom two clubs.

The Bully Wee have flung the kitchen sink at trying to avoid the drop and Ian McCall has managed to get some big results having looked like they were adrift at the bottom.

And a win against Stranraer would see them overtake them with only four games to go after it.

They were well beaten at Peterhead last week but are better at New Douglas Park and have won two of their last four home games and drawn one too.

They are playing a Stranraer side whose last win away from Stair Park in the league was back in August and have a doomed look about them.

DUNDEE have a great chance to cement their top six hopes and can beat Motherwell at 11/8.

There's been a huge issue with the Dens Park pitch this week, but putting that to one side, Tony Docherty's men have done brilliantly this season to avoid any talk of being sucked into a relegation dogfight. They've also won the last two games against Aberdeen and at St Johnstone.

Well fought back to grab a point from St Mirren last week, but Saints missed plenty of chances to seal it in the first half.
And if Dundee can keep Theo Bair quiet, they should have enough to make it three wins in a row.

    Be a miracle if Bonnyrigg is on!

    Dundee for me too watched them at Perth last week and while I thought they were fortunate to win I just worry about Motherwells motivation here. If the dens pitch is playable I expect a big crowd and Dundee know if they’re to make top 6 they need a win here! Goals might be a shout here too!

    Other selection is over 2.5 goals raith vs ayr where a draw suits neither! 17/20
