AFTER all the furore over the Scotland v Czech Rep game it's easy to forget about the Ramsdens Cup quarter-finals that take place on Sunday.

Three feature Division One sides against  lower-league opposition with Hamilton and Morton contesting the fourth.

There are usually shocks in this tournament but I'm taking Ayr, Livingston and Falkirk to edge out sides from Divisions Two and Three.

Ayr have struggled in the league but have been great in both cups and are 8-13 with William Hill at home to Third Division leaders Annan.

Falkirk should win at an East Fife side who somehow followed their League Cup success against SPL Dunfermline by losing 6-0 at home to Dumbarton.

The Bairns are  without top scorer Farid El Allagui but it will be one-sided if the Fifers' defence is as poor as last week. Falkirk are a biggest 1-1 at bet365.

And Livingston, 8-13 at Betfred, should complete an all-First Division semi-final line-up with victory at Berwick where they won a title on their last visit two years ago.

Hamilton v Morton looks like a draw and the all-First Division could go all the way to penalties.

On the outrights William Hill go Hamilton 5-2, Livingston 3-1, Falkirk  7-2, Ayr 7-1, Morton 9-1, East Fife 16-1, Annan 20-1, Berwick 20-1.

Hills have priced up the highest scoring match and make  Ayr v Annan 2-1, Berwick v Livingston 9-4, East Fife v Falkirk 3-1 and Hamilton v Morton 7-2.

A both teams to score punt on all games is tempting. Ayr, Annan and Hamilton have netted in their last six while Morton, Falkirk, Berwick and Livingston have scored in five of their last six.

East Fife have failed to hit the target in three of their last six but did beat SPL Dunfermline 2-1 at home in their least tie which was in the League Cup.

Perm three from four and all four or do the treble and leave out East Fife v Falkirk. William Hill are biggest price on three of the four and offer 4-7 at Ayr, 3-5 at Berwick, 8-15 at East Fife and 10-11 at Hamilton.

If  you are looking for first scorers on these games William Hill and are among firms who have priced them up.
