FOCUSING on the Scottish games today and taking a resurgent Clyde to inflict another defeat on Berwick.
Berwick Rangers v Clyde (3pm)
Three wins on the spin have propelled Danny Lennon's Clyde side back to within three points of leaders Peterhead and they'll be fancying their chances of making it a 4th consecutive win away to struggling Berwick.
Clyde have a decent squad this year and should be Peterhead’s main challengers. I'm still really surprised they kept hold of striker David Goodwillie, he'll be the difference in a lot of matches over the course of the season and I’d expect him to add to his 7 goals against this leaky defence,
Berwick are having an awful time of it – they've lost 9 of their 11 matches but what has to be a real concern for them is their powder-puff attack. They have failed to score in 9 games this season which is shocking. At home they have lost 0-3 0-4 0-3 0-3 0-3 and have just one 1-0 win to show for their efforts.
Clyde should be too good for today’s hosts and I'd expect them to win by a couple of goals.
Hearts v St Johnstone (3pm)
I'll be at Tynecastle today for what should be a really entertaining game. Hearts have a had a terrific start to the season and sit perched at the summit of the SPFL.
They have turned Tynecastle into a fortress and Craig Levein deserves massive credit for his transfer dealings in the summer. I can’t see Hearts not scoring at least once and we are much more of an attacking threat and more than capable of scoring here,
- Clyde to beat Berwick
- Hearts v St Johnstone over 1.5 match goals

Preston v WBA (3pm)
I think the bookies have got this completely wrong. They have WBA priced up at 7-5 away to a Preston side who are bottom of the league and have conceded 2 or more in 7 of their 9 games this season.
Stoke, Bolton and Reading have scored 7 goals between them at Deepdale and these are clubs who are struggling. I fear for the hosts against WBA who are 3rd in the league, playing well and scoring goals.
- WBA to beat Preston
