GOALS on the menu from an action-packed Scottish card.
Queen of the South v Ross County (3pm)
What a joy it must be being a QoS fan at the moment – they have the most in-form striker in British football in Stephen Dobbie. He's scored an incredible 20 goals already this season and this side are netting for fun.
They've scored 17 goals in their last 5 games and at home they certainly use their artificial pitch to their advantage.
I've seen them in action this season and was really impressed, they knock it about well and although Dobbie gets all the limelight they have some cracking players.
Dobbie can thank strike partner Lyndon Dykes for a lot of the goals he's scored. The big Australian is a real handful and terrific in the air and they work fantastically well as a front pair.
They welcome league leaders Ross County who managed to retain the majority of last season's squad after being relegated and it's certainly paying dividends. Five of their last 6 have seen over 2.5 goals and they'll fancy their chances of collecting another three points.
This should be a cracking game and I'm expecting both sides to get in on the action.
- Back Over 2.5 goals

Hibs v Kilmarnock (3pm)
It's been far from a good start by Neil Lennon's Hibs, collecting just 5 points from their opening 4 games, and after a really poor 2-1 defeat at Livingston last time out they'll be looking to get their season back on track.
They'll be pleased to be back at home and have turned Easter Road into something of a fortress – they've won 8 and drawn three of their last 11 matches at home in the league (including wins over Celtic, Hearts and Aberdeen) and they have the quality and firepower to get back to winning ways.
This won't be an easy game – Kilmarnock are a well-organised outfit and Steve Clarke has done a fantastic job turning them from relegation candidates into top-six challengers. But with home advantage and a stronger team, I'm taking Hibs to edge this at a good price.
- Back Hibs to win
