SlipsTips shares his favourite fancy from Saturday's final round of fixtures in Scottish League Two.
Forfar vs Stenhousemuir (Saturday, 15:00)
Forfar Athletic will set out to cement their place in second spot in Scottish League Two when they play host to Stenhousemuir on Saturday.
Gary Irvine’s team have already guaranteed themselves a crack at the promotion playoffs but they sit on the same points tally as Annan ahead of this weekend’s final round of regular league fixtures.
As such, the Loons will be keen to nail down second place as it would afford them home advantage in the second leg of their forthcoming playoff semi final.
Meanwhile, Stenhousemuir’s hopes of making the playoffs were extinguished courtesy of a crushing 3-1 defeat at home to Stranraer last Saturday.
Forfar backers will be offered a general 10/11 about Irvine’s side securing second spot on Saturday but we can get some 59/50 (UniBet) on the hosts hitting two or more goals and that looks like an enticing alternative.
The Angus outfit boast the second best home record in the division this season, having avoided defeat in 14 of their 17 outings at Station Park this term, triumphing on no fewer than 10 occasions.
It’s also worth pointing out that the Loons have scored two or more goals in a league-high 19 (54%) of their 35 tier four tussles to date.
As for Stenny, they come into this game with nothing other than pride to play for following last weekend’s aforementioned demoralising defeat that consequently saw their push for a playoff place go up in smoke.
Therefore, the Warriors will make the trip north in low spirits which doesn’t bode well when you consider that Stephen Swift’s side have posted a joint league-low seven clean sheets this season so far.
Given that Forfar will be playing with added incentive, coupled with the fact that they have delivered at least two goals in 12 (71%) of their 17 home games this season, backing the hosts to strike twice at 59/50 (UniBet) is a price that definitely represents value.
