SlipsTips shares two selections from this weekend's action in Scotland, with Scottish League Two taking centre-stage.

East Fife vs Stranraer (Saturday, 15:00)

East Fife will be looking to extend their unbeaten run in Scottish League Two to seven matches when they square off with Stranraer on Saturday.

The fifth-placed Fifers appear to have benefited from a new manager bounce, with Dick Campbell yet to taste defeat since taking the reins at Bayview, with his side most recently battling to a 1-1 draw away at second in the table Peterhead.

As for second from bottom Stranraer, their relegation fears have heightened following back-to-back defeats against both Peterhead and Elgin respectively.

The bookmakers’ odds suggest the Blues will suffer the same this weekend, with East Fife now general 3/4 chances with most firms.

With East Fife a little skinny to side with at the above-mentioned price, I’m happy to opt for an alternative option by backing the hosts to score two or more goals at 10/11 on William Hill.

As already mentioned, East Fife have been upwardly mobile under Dick Campbell’s astute management, having posted a return of three wins and three draws thus far.

What’s more, in each of those three victories, the Fifers have found the back of the net at least twice and they look well-priced to repeat the trick against struggling Stranraer.

Scott Agnew’s guests have won just one of their last six league matches, losing on no fewer than four occasions across that stretch of games.

It's also worth noting that the Stair Park side shipped two or more goals in all four of those losses, not to mention they have conceded 2+ strikes in nine of their 14 Scottish League Two road games this season so far.

With all that in mind, backing fast-improving East Fife to make the net bulge twice at Bayview on Saturday holds plenty of appeal at 10/11 with William Hill.

Recommended Bet

Clyde vs Stranraer (Saturday, 15:00)

Clyde continue their Scottish League Two survival bid with a home game against Spartans on Saturday.

Ian McCall’s men have set the wheels in motion for an unlikely great escape after earning top honours from three of their last four league games, the latest of which was a vital 2-1 win away at Bonnyrigg Rose.

The Spartans, meanwhile, are occupying the final playoff spot in the top four despite last week's 6-2 drubbing from Dumbarton.

As such, the Bully Wee will have their backers this weekend at odds-against quotes, however one player makes particular appeal here in the Anytime Goalscorer market.

Jordan Allan has hit a purple patch of form for Clyde and he merits confederation at 6/4 on McBookie to continue his hot-streak in front of goal

The on-loan Falkirk striker is spearheading Ian McCall's rescue mission, having bagged a brace in three of his last four outings for the Bully Wee.

Allan’s other goal outside of those six strikes since returning to Clyde came in his second debut against Spartans at the back end of January and he and he can rise to the occasion again when the capital club come calling this weekend.

Dougie Samuel’s visitors are wobbling at the moment, having picked up just two points from the last 12 on offer, leaking a lofty 11 goals in the process.

In fact, Ainslie Park outfit have only managed to silence their opponents in nine of their last 12 Scottish fourth tier assignments, which doesn’t augur well ahead of a clash with a Clyde side that sit top of the form table over the last six rounds of action.

Given the hosts greater need for the points, backing their in-form striker Jordan Allan to notch at 6/4 (McBookie) looks a terrific price to get behind in South Lanarkshire on Saturday.
