FIVE to follow has become three to cheer thanks to this weekend's reduced card.

And if the treble comes up it may stay that way.

One regular visitor to the site last week suggested the five to follow should feature the same teams each week and that I should be keeping a track of their fortunes then tipping up win, lose or draw.

It's not a bad idea but what do you think? And have you any suggestions about the teams it should be because I don't want to take obvious ones such as Rangers, Celtic, Chelsea Man United.

Anyway, back to today and I'm starting in Scotland where just four games are being played.

One of them is the ALBA Challenge Cup semi-final between Peterhead and Queen of the South.

On their game Queens are an impressive outfit, one of the best in the First Division, and with a cup final place at stake I can't see them slipping up at Second Division rivals.

My only concern would be Queens' away form – one victory in four – but counter-acting that is the fact Peterhead are sitting second bottom of the table. Queens are 4-5 with Ladbrokes.

Next I'm taking Peterborough at Hartlepool. The Posh have managed to retain strikers George Boyd and Craig Mackail-Smith despite relegation and continue to bang in the goals.

They have netted 23 in 10 games in the league and head to a Hartlepool side battered 4-0 at home to Carlisle in their last league outing. Peterborough are
13-10 with William Hill.

Finally, a Bradford fan I know reckons his side have no chance at Barnet.

This was to be Bradford's season with Peter Taylor in charge but they've gone from Brad to worse (sorry).

Defeat at Barnet could even see them drop to the foot of the table and almost spark Taylor's departure.

Bradford haven't netted in four games, have lost another striker in the shape of Gareth Evans and I'm told have had just 30 shots in 10 games.

Barnet aren't the greatest but are capable of good results and look tempting at
8-5 with William Hill.
