ISN'T it great when teams play out a 4-3 game then meet the following week?

That's the case with Dumbarton and Livingston who were involved in a seven-goal cracker at the BetButler with the Sons recovering from 4-1 down to almost force a draw.

The action switches to the Almondvale Stadium but that won't faze Dumbarton who have played some of their best stuff away from home including a 3-0 win at leaders Morton.

It was 3-2 to Livi when the sides met in West Lothian earlier in the season and the last seven meetings have produced 31 goals.

Next take a look at Stirling v Montrose which has brought up this market in the last three meetings with 13 goals scored.

Montrose have won 3-2 and 3-1 this season but five of Stirling's last six have seen both score and Greig McDonald's side have added experience in the transfer window which should give them a lift.

Four of Montrose's last six have seen both score including a 2-2 draw with East Stirling last week and 1-1 stalemate at Rangers in their previous outing.

One of the most famous scorelines in Scottish football history is East Fife 5, Forfar 4 – just because it gave the announcer so much trouble.

The sides meet at New Bayview and while 5-4 is unlikely I could see a 3-2 for example. There have been plenty of goals in this fixture down the years with the last 11 averaging about 3.5 and there have been eight in two meetings this season. by the way are offering 250-1 on this outcome.

Another fixture that's been thrill a minute is Airdrie v Morton. It was 3-2 to the visitors earlier in the campaign at New Broomfield and the last seven meetings in Lanarkshire have totalled 32 goals.

Five of Airdrie's last six have seen both net and last time out they went down 4-3 at Falkirk. Morton crashed 5-1 in the Scottish Cup at Dundee last week so will be hoping to shore things up.

Finally, complete the line with Inverness v Celtic. It was 4-2 to the champions in the Highland at the start of the season and both teams have scored in nine of 13 meetings at the Caledonian Stadium.

Inverness failed to score at Kilmarnock in the Scottish Cup last week but Terry Butcher's were handicapped by the early loss of star men Andrew Shinnie and Jonny Hayes. Shinnie will return but Hayes remains a doubt.

Butcher also has top scorer Billy McKay at his disposal and life could be a little easier if Celtic play a weakened side ahead of their Champions League last-16 tie with Juventus.

Neil Lennon's men have plenty of options up front, including possible starts for Tony Watt and Anthony Stokes, even if he decides to rotate and with 17 goals in their last five you always fancy the leaders to hit the target.

The Inverness v Celtic game kicks off at 12 noon on Saturday – if you don't want to take the early one replace it with Dundee United v Hearts or Airdrie v Morton who are missing some key defenders.

    Mr F can see the whole spl score this wkend!
    Only team to worry me are aberdeen as they couldnt score against hibs in 2 games plus missed 2 pens! Worth a 5 spot!

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Alex, Aberdeen a definite concern and I quite fancy St Mirren up there. I have to wonder about Killie too with top scorer Cillian Sheridan injured.

  2. John 11 years ago

    I’m surprised not to see Raith v Partick, Elgin v Annan or Albion v Arbroath in there, 3 decent games but like you say some have to be left out

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      John, re the Scots btts, it’s one of those where you can make a case for many of the games but I’m only picking five. Raith haven’t scored in their last three so it’s not on my shortlist and Albion haven’t scored in their last two so it’s a doubt for me. I’ll give you Elgin v Annan and throw in another, Airdrie v Morton with the Greenock men going with a makeshift defence.

    Mr F
    Can you advise me on the games for 1st Goalscorer predictions for this w/end please?

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Austin, games in the Paddy Power first scorer contest are at Inverness, Dundee Utd, Spurs, Southampton and Man United.

  4. Austin Hay 11 years ago

    Thanks for that

  5. Duncy Mac 11 years ago

    Bully Wee fan, and we played really well last week and should have scored 4 or 5. Berwick v Clyde tomorrow should be a nailed on btts.

    What has happened to the super single contest, can’t see any link

    I know it’s how it goes but how on earth could Airdrie not score if Morton were 4 up and missing defenders, they must have had an absolute shocker
