Meanwhile, here is McBookie.com’s Damian Walker with his Saturday selections.
Damian writes: It’s the fourth round of the Scottish Cup and all the big boys are in. The draw made by Sir Alex Ferguson produced four all-Premiership ties and there are three live TV games.
Perhaps the most intriguing tie involves Rangers travelling to the Falkirk Stadium in a game that will be shown live on Sky at lunchtime on Saturday.
Rangers have swept all before them in League One and have a 100 per cent record but the first half of games haven’t been plain sailing. Amazingly, they have gone in at half time at 0-0 in six of their last eight games which they went on to win.
This offers some scope for a Falkirk player scoring the opener. The Bairns drove in the final nail for Cowdenbeath boss Colin Cameron after their 4-0 thrashing last weekend and had taken a point at Dens Park the weekend before.
Midfielder Mark Millar has been instrumental in both those games and grabbed two goals in the Cowdenbeath match. Millar, a former Bairn before moving to Dundee Utd, has returned on loan and is 12-1 with McBookie to score the first goal.
There are four Premiership clubs taking on lower-league opposition and possibly the biggest banana skin stands in front of St Mirren who face a tough trip to Palmerston against Queen of the South.
Goals have been in short supply for the Buddies on their travels in the Premiership this season with them failing to score in four of their six away league games.
The Doonhammers haven’t really been able to replace Nicky Clark’s goals this season since his move to Rangers but there are signs 20-year-old Gavin Reilly could be shaping up into a useful forward for them.
The former trainee has spent a lot of his career warming his backside on the bench and amazingly came on a sub in 15 straight matches this season.
However, manager Jim McIntyre has started putting his faith in Reilly, who started in his last six games and rewarded his boss with three goals. Reilly is 21-10 with McBookie to score at anytime.
Queen's Park had looked as though they were turning the corner following good results against Albion Rovers Clyde and Montrose but since then the Spiders have shipped eight goals without reply against Stirling and Peterhead and remain rooted at the bottom of League Two.
Their goal difference stands at minus 22 which takes some doing after just 13 games. Saturday sees second from bottom Elgin visit and the Black and Whites have been sharing their goals out between Craig Gunn and Dennis Wyness of late.
Gunn has a fantastic scoring record since joining Elgin in 2009 with 65 goals from 131 starts. He already has 11 to his name this season and can be backed at 7-2 with McBookie to further Queens Park’s misery this season by scoring the opener.
Remember, McBookie.com are the only online bookmaker that allows you to bet on scorer markets in the Championship, League One and League Two.
Meanwhile, McBookie have installed Lee Makel as the 3-1 favourite to be the next manager of Cowdenbeath following Colin Cameron’s resignation this week. He is followed in the betting by Jimmy Nicholl and Archie Knox.
Spokesman Paul Petrie said: “In these hard financial times an internal appointment seems to be the preferred option and Lee Makel is in pole position. However, the Cowdenbeath board have said they want an experienced manager and Jimmy Nicholl and Archie Knox certainly fit that bill.”
Next Cowdenbeath manager: 3/1 Lee Makel 6/1 Jimmy Nicholl 6/1 Archie Knox 8/1 Billy Reid 8/1 David Weir 10/1 John Hughes 10/1 Kenny Shiels 12/1 Jimmy Calderwood 12/1 Jim Duffy 12/1 Barry Smith 16/1 Brian Reid 16/1 John Robertson 20/1 Allan Moore 20/1 Ian Ferguson 25/1 Dick Campbell 25/1 Craig Levein 25/1 Neil McCann 33/1 Billy Brown.
