THERE'S a huge game in Scotland on Saturday that's set to grab the attention of the nation in a bitter clash.

Yes, it's ALBION ROVERS' attempts to get off the bottom of League Two in a basement battle clash with Elgin City of course!

While this Coatbridge crunch may not quite merit the same attention as the Old Firm, the entire futures of both clubs are at stake,

Finishing bottom of the Scottish League means a play-off with a hungry, big-spending and used-to-winning champions of the Lowland or Highland League and as the likes of Cowdenbeath,

Berwick Rangers and East Stirlingshire have discovered, once you go into the depths of the Scottish pyramid system, no one can hear you scream.

But the Wee Rovers could draw level on points with a freefalling Elgin and get the job done at 6/5.

They've just appointed veteran coach Sandy Clark as manager and will be hoping for a bounce. They are a strange team – they went to Dumbarton and hammered them 5-1 a couple of weeks ago and also won by four goals at Bonnyrigg Rose and Stranrarer, but their Cliftonhill form has led them down.

But they face an Elgin team who have lost seven of their last eight games and have scored in just two of those games and Rovers can repeat a 3-0 win against them at the same venue in February.

ABERDEEN have suddenly got into a great chance to steal third place off Hearts and they can keep their fine run going at a decent price of 17/20 against Kilmarnock.

Barry Robson's side are on something of a roll after his appointment first as caretaker boss and then on a deal to the summer, after four wins in five.

They were actually poor last week in Perth against a St Johnstone side reduced to ten men for the vast majority of the game, but still got the three points.

It's a return to Pittodrie for Derek McInnes, but their away form is a disaster. Killie haven't won an away league game all season in 15 attempts and Aberdeen have the best home record in the league outside the Old Firm.

HAMILTON ACCIES can win a crucial relegation battle in the Championship by beating struggling Cove Rangers at 23/20.

Accies were ripped apart by Dundee 7-0 the previous week, but deserve enormous credit for going to Raith Rovers in midweek and winning – something few teams do.

A win for John Rankin's men would see them five points clear against the Aberdeen side who have now lost six in a row and conceded 14 goals in their last three matches.

RECOMMENDATIONS:
ALBION ROVERS 6/5
ABERDEEN 17/20
HAMILTON ACCIES 23/20.
