MONTROSE can justify odds of 10/11 by beating Annan Athletic in a League One clash this week.

The Angus side are up to third in the table, although it looks like Falkirk and Hamilton Accies will be far too strong to catch to make it a title race.

But they put five goals past Edinburgh City – who had been improving – in the capital last week and look too strong for an Annan side who have struggled since their promotion.

They did stop a run of four losses in a row last week at home to Kelty Hearts, but it's their form away from Galabank that has been the issue for them this season.

They have played six games away from home and collected just a solitary point.

Montrose have plenty goals in them with the likes of Kane Hester on their books and even netted two goals at leaders Falkirk in a 3-2 defeat.

And they have enough to win the points at Links Park. HEARTS simply didn't show up in last week's Viaplay Cup sem-final against Rangers at Hampden, but they partly redeem themselves with a win at Fir Park against Motherwell at 11/8.

Manager Steven Naismith is under pressure now and this is very close to a must-win game for him and his Jambos team.

And they won't get a better chance than against a Well side who could be in serious dangers of being dragged into a relegation dogfight.

Stuart Kettlewell's side have not won since a win at Tynecastle at the start of September and the capital side will be out for revenge here.

Motherwell have collected just two points from a possible 24 since then and needed to mount a tw-goal comeback to claim a draw at bottom side St Johnstone in midweek.

Hearts never laid a glove on Rangers last week, but it's a completely different proposition facing this Well side and they can get the away win.

DUMBARTON can win at 6/5 at East Fife in League Two.

The Sons produced a great display last week when they thumped Bonnyrigg Rose 4-0 which followed on from their lucky Scottish Cup win against Banks O'Dee when they needed two injury time goals to win.

They have already beaten East Fife at The Rock this season and the Methil side are struggling just now after a Scottish Cup shock defeat at Dunbar United and a loss at Peterhead last week.
