Here is’s Damian Walker with his Saturday selections.

Damian writes: Quite an annoying weekend last weekend. Darren Smith did the business for us at 11-2 and I picked wins for 7-2 Forfar and 13-8 Falkirk but no first scorer in those games with Loons' first-choice penalty taker Mark Millar not playing and the first goal of the game a Forfar pen!

“A few weeks ago I wrote about the transformation of sides both for the good and the bad following the transfer window and one team that seems to have changed for better is Berwick.

“Boss Robbie Horn has had a busy January and brought in five players who were playing their trade at a higher level, either on loan or on a full signing.

“It might just start to pay off as two weeks ago they registered their first win in six games and in midweek they pushed red-hot title favourites Peterhead all the way in a 3-2 home defeat having pulled it back level when two goals down.

“This Saturday they travel to face Stenhousemuir who are ridiculously short in the betting at 4-7 having lost two of their last three League Two matches. Berwick are a whopping 22-5.

“Two new arrivals – Ousman See and Jack Hamilton – have scored in their last two starts for Berwick and I like the look of McBookie’s 7-1 about on-loan Livingston striker Hamilton grabbing the first goal of the game.

“The second selection is in League One where I think Stranraer should be odds on for their home game with East Fife.

“The Blues had a big cost-cutting clear-out prior to the window but have actually done really well in the meantime winning their next three games, including a 1-0 home win over Raith Rovers.

“On deadline day boss Stevie Farrell brought in Cameron MacPherson on loan from St Mirren and Killie loanee Dean Hawkshaw to strengthen the midfield.

“Saturday’s opponents East Fife look a club in freefall and have won just one of their last 10 matches, including a 1-0 home defeat to Highland League outfit Brora Rangers in the Scottish Cup.

“I really do think this could be an easy win for Stranraer and it is amazing they can be backed at 6-5, they ought to be around 8-13 in my book.

Angus Beith’s goals have been instrumental in Stranraer’s recent run of form and he has scored in his last four straight matches with five in total. McBookie make him 4-1 to score the opening goal and that looks good.

“The final selection is in the Premiership where I fancy Hibs to keep things tight at Ibrox and get a result. Neil Lennon’s side have been miserly at the back and conceded just four goals in their last six games, which includes a 1-0 defeat to Celtic.

“Rangers have done some good business in the window but it wasn’t until the 82nd minute that they grabbed a second goal last weekend away to the division’s leakiest defence – Ross County – who have shipped 44 goals in 25 games.

“New Hibs signing Florian Kamberi scored just 28 minutes into his debut in midweek having joined from Swiss side Grasshoppers. Kamberi is 8-1 with McBookie to score the opening goal in what could be a very tight affair.

“Can you find a winner!”
