FALKIRK boss Steven Pressley was furious when Carl Finnigan denied his side a midweek win with a late equaliser for Dundee.

The big striker joined on loan from St Johnstone earlier in the day and made his considerable presence felt right away.

Next up for Finnigan and co on Saturday is a meeting with leaders Ross County at Dens Park. Five points separate the sides and it's one Dee must win to have any chance of promotion because they've played three games more.

I can see an exciting game with Dundee among the goals with Finnigan leading the line. However, County possess a decent goal threat of their own.

Both meetings this season have seen the sides score and County's last four would have paid out on this market.

Next I'm looking at Peterhead v Annan in the Third Division. The sides locked horns for the first time this season and the three meetings have produced 13 goals.

It was 3-2 to Annan in the Highlands earlier in the season and they have won all three previous clashes. This one is harder to call but there should be goals.

Peterhead's last five have featured 20 goals while Annan's last five have produced 17 with both on target each time.

Stay in the Third Division and back Queen's Park v Stranraer. Seven of the last eight have seen both score with 33 goals in total.

Queen's hit five on their last home outing against Montrose and there have been 25 goals in their last six games. Stranraer struggled to a 1-0 win against Clyde last week but before that their previous five had produced 21 goals.

Another game that usually produces goals is Kilmarnock v Hibs and having netted three at Motherwell in midweek you'd fancy the struggling Edinburgh visitors to at least hit the target at Rugby Park.

Seven of the last eight have seen both score and Killie won 4-1 at home earlier this season. Kenny Shiels' men followed a 2-0 win at Ibrox with a 4-0 defeat at Dundee United in midweek but didn't concede until they went down to 10 men.

The gaffer's son Dean and Paul Heffernan are always likely to trouble defences and hopefully this will be a decent game with plenty of goals.

Finally, I' m taking a bit of a chance on Berwick v East Stirling. History is on our side with four of the last five seeing both score, including two meetings this season which were won 4-2 and 3-1 by Berwick.

They are short-priced favourites against the bottom dogs but usually concede. They've let in 13 in six games, with just one clean sheet away to Alloa.

Shire have won just one in five but have netted eight goals in that spell, drawing a blank in one game. This has the look of a 2-1 or 3-1 Berwick win.
