BUSY card tonight but no need to venture too far as there is a Scottish Championship match I look the look of as Robbie Neilson's Dundee United host Alloa and will be looking to reduce the gap at the top.

Dundee United v Alloa (7.45pm)

I think it's fair to say Dundee United have been completely transformed since the arrival of manager Robbie Neilson just over a month ago. Played 5, W4 D1 L0 – 13 points from 15 is an impressive haul especially given how poor this United side were at the start of the season and the teams they've beaten.

They were in danger of having to accept that play-offs were their only hope of promotion which is criminal given the quality of the squad and the far superior budget they have in comparison to most of the other teams in this league. That upturn in fortune sees them right in the mix and in my opinion favourites to win the league.

A win tonight see them leapfrog Ross count into second and just three points behind leaders Ayr.

United are as short as 2-5 tonight but there is value I believe in United and over 1.5 match goals, a market that has landed in 6 of their 7 wins this season.

The Wasps to their credit are competing well in this league and although they are third bottom they'll make life difficult for United. However, I don't see them stopping United making it 5 wins from 6 under Neilson, United's quality will show and I'd expect them to win this by a couple of goals.

Recommended Bet

  • Dundee United to win and over 1.5 match goals
  • 4-5 (Ladbrokes) (NAP)


Kosovo v Azerbaijan (7.45pm)

What a terrific story it's been for Kosovo and they have been one of the standout teams from the Nations League. They top their group and will be backed by a full house of 17,000 fans as they look to win the group.

They just need to avoid defeat but with Azerbaijan needing to win, it may play into the hosts' hands who have been terrific at home and man for man, have better players than the visitors.

That's backed up by the high level many of the Kosovans play at, playing their club football in the top flight in Germany, Holland, Italy and Belgium.

Azerbaijan have had a decent campaign too but they did fail to beat Malta twice (two 1-1 draws) while Kosovo travelled to Malta at the weekend and hammered them 5-0.

With Kosovo at home and playing well, I'm taking them to win the group in style.

Recommended Bet

  • Kosovo to beat Azerbaijan
  • 5-6 (Coral)


There are 10 FA Cup replays tonight with quite a few lower-league clubs involved, these should be quite open affairs. And with 10 games there's always a high chance a that a few of these games will yield a high number of goals.

Sky Bet have set 28+ goals which I think is reasonable and I don't think it will be too far away.

Recommended Bet

  • 10 FA Cup matches 28+ goals to be scored
  • 6-5 (Skybet)
