Forfar Athletic v Stranraer
Forfar were narrowly pipped to the League One title last year, and have started this season with similar intent, sitting three points off top spot after seven matches. Very unfortunate in defeat at Cowdenbeath last week, Forfar will be glad to be back at Station Park to make amends, and should have enough to see off struggling Stranraer. Brian Reid took over a side that were also in the title hunt last season, but the departure of gaffer Aitken, along with key players in Frank McKeown and Willie Gibson, The Blues are in a transitional period and find themselves languishing second bottom of the pile. I’m surprised to see Forfar at a shade under evens at 20/23 with McBookie, so I’ll be taking that price tonight.
Ayr United v Peterhead
Dunfermline have been grabbing headlines with their high scoring victories early in the season, but the form side in the division are leaders Ayr United, and The Honest Men are odds against to continue their fine form with a win at home to Peterhead. After a stinking 3-0 defeat at Albion Rovers on opening day, Ian McColl’s men have amassed 16 points from a possible 18, scoring 15 goals in that time, including a superb 2-0 win at Dunfermline 14 days ago. I’ve given Peterhead a few chances this season, but they’re without a win since August 22nd, and lost at home to pointless Brechin City last Saturday. William Hill have the home side at 6/5.
