Here is Damian with this weekend's selections.
He says: “I'm going to start this weekend’s column in League One where the fixture list has conspired to produce the final game of the season between bottom club Brechin City at home to second-bottom Stenhousemuir.
“A point will be good enough for the visitors to avoid automatic relegation and they would have snapped your hand off for that opportunity in mid-January.
“In fact since January 26 they have lost just five of their next 15 league games and amassed 20 points – four more than they accrued from their first 20 league matches.
“While Stenny have the forward momentum City have it in reverse, with just a single point taken from their last six games.
“Added to that run the Hedgemen have shipped 15 goals in those six matches and for my money the Warriors should be clear favourites for this game not 17-10 outsiders.
“Stenny striker Mark McGuigan has done this column a couple of favours already this season and has 17 goals to date in the campaign. McBookie make McGuigan 4-1 to open the scoring.
“In the Championship any one of three teams could be relegated on Saturday but Falkirk are the only ones that must win to have any hope of survival and they are at home to champions Ross County.
“In such instances bookmakers often overreact with their prices about “must-win” teams up against sides with theoretically nothing to play for. And I feel that is the case here.
“The Staggies would be odds on in any other scenario yet can be backed at 5-4. Brian Graham has been finishing the season in great style with five goals from his last two games and is 7-2 with McBookie to score the first goal.
“Finally, in League Two Albion Rovers have worked wonders to extricate themselves from at one stage what looked like a certain last-place finish. They have won five of their last eight matches including wins in their last two scoring three goals apiece.
“Given that run the Wee Rovers look too big at 13-5 to win at home to Stirling Albion. Striker Smart Osadolor has scored three times from his last three games and is 11-2 with McBookie to score the game’s first goal.
