Leagues Tipped:

IT'S turning out to be a fascinating end to the season in the Scottish Championship as five clubs fight it out to remain in the league.

Just five points separate Alloa in seventh and bottom side Partick Thistle and there will be plenty of twists and turn still to come.

I'm focusing on the match between two clubs fully involved in the relegation fight as Falkirk welcome Morton in a match neither side can afford to lose.

Falkirk vs Morton (3pm)

For the size of club Falkirk are and the fanbase they have it's criminal they are even in this position but the fact is they are and over the course of the season have been a massive disappointment.

The Falkirk board recognise how crucial this game is and how disastrous relegation to League One would be so to aid the team's cause they have slashed admission prices and a crowd of more than 6000 is expected – a crowd that would put a lot of Premeriship clubs to shame.

This match has added spice with Bairns boss Ray McKinnon facing his former club after controversially walking out on the Greenock side earlier in the season.

In terms of form Falkirk secured a massive three points last week away to local rivals Dunfermline, that win ensured they stayed above basement side Partick Thistle and sets them up nicely for today's six-pointer.

They've only lost two of their last 14 matches which is stark contrast to Morton who have only won one of their last 14.

The Cappielow faithful are running out of patience with manager Jonatan Johansson and defeat today would could leave them occupying the relegation play-off spot.

Most of their good work is done at home and without an away win in seven and completely out of form coming into this it's hard not to fancy Falkirk to collect three points in front off a packed stadium.

The importance of this game is signified further for the Bairns as they play top two Dundee United and Ross County in their final two games. Happy to take them at a shade of odds against versus this struggling Morton side.

Partick Thistle vs Alloa (3pm)

If Jim Goodwin leads his Alloa side to safety this season he is without any shadow of a doubt Championship manager of the season and should be given the freedom of the town.

What he's done with this Alloa side is incredible – their budget and fanbase is a fraction of the league's other clubs and add into the mix they are part-time and it really is a terrific story.

Four consecutive wins has propelled them to sixth and a win today will all but seal their place in the league. It's going to be tough though as they face basement side Partick Thistle fighting for their lives.

I'm not interested in trying to find a winner from this contest. I am, however, really liking the look of goals between two sides who cant defend.

Alloa have seen 14 of their last 16 matches on the road go over 2.5 goals with nine of their last 10 seeing both sides score while Thistle's last 10 games at Firhill have all seen both sides score with eight of them going over 2.5 goals.

It's another real six-pointer and there is nothing to suggest we won't see goals especially given Thistle's plight and their need to win.
