IT'S Scottish Cup weekend but I'm kicking off with a Division Three game.

Montrose and Stranraer have met twice this season with a 6-0 win for the Blues at Links Park being followed by a 4-4 draw on the south-west coast.

Last season both teams scored in all four meetings between the sides including a 5-4 win for Stranraer and a 3-3 and 2-2 draw.

A week ago Stranraer beat Annan 4-2 while Montrose's last six games have produced 25 goals including a 5-3 home loss to Berwick.

If both teams don't score here I promise to watch another Dumbarton match again this season after being dragged along last week.

So now to the Cup and let's start with Falkirk v East Fife. The Fifers face a tough task but remember they had a brilliant League Cup run, winning at Dunfermline and Aberdeen.

Despite last week's 4-0 defeat at Cowdenbeath the Second Division side will give it their best shot at the Falkirk Stadium.

I can't see the Bairns, unbeaten in five, not winning but they could concede.

Next look at the all First Division battle between Livingston and Ayr. It was 0-0 at Ayr when they last met but at Almondvale the home side won 3-2 and this should be a decent game with the visitors already in the semi-finals of the League Cup.

Like East Fife, Ayr will be up against it but have netted in four of their last five so should make a fist of it. Livingston have scored in five of their last six and should have key striker Kenny “Dr Goals” Deuchar fit.

My third choice is another all First Division affair between Raith Rovers and Morton. The last two meetings between the sides were score draws and three out of four have seen both scores.

Make it a fourfold with Dundee v Kilmarnock, a match shown live on BBC. Dundee are going well in the First Division and will fancy their chances of a shock.

However, Killie have reached the League Cup semis and have netted in five of their last six in the SPL, playing some decent stuff.

Kenny Shiels' side have goals in them with the likes of Paul Heffernan, Dean Shiels and now Danny Raachi providing a threat. It should be an entertaining tie with both sides hitting the target.

Complete the fivefold with Airdrie v Dundee United. Airdrie let us down for the first time in ages last week when they failed to concede in the league against Albion Rovers.

Generally their games have produced goals galore and although United should win there's every chance an Airdrie side who boast Scotland's top scorer in Ryan Donnelly can at least find the net once.

United's Jon Daly and co should fill their boots at the other end but I can this being 3-1 or 4-1 to the Arabs.
