Ladbrokes SPFL: Rocky travellers Raith offer Alloa home hope

| 11.03.2016

With Hibernian in Scottish League Cup Final action, and Rangers hosting Morton on Friday night, Saturday’s Ladbrokes SPFL attention turns elsewhere, and this could be the weekend Alloa finally kill their home hoodoo.

St Mirren host Queen of the South, with both sides witnessing few goals of late, and Dumbarton welcome the in-form Falkirk.

In Ladbrokes League 1, Dunfermline face a tricky prospect on the road, while in Ladbrokes League 2 we could easily be seeing yet another change at the top.

Here’s your weekly preview…

Ladbrokes Championship

Time is running out for Alloa to avoid ending the season without a home win, and this weekend’s visitors Raith could be the fall guys who help the Wasps end their drought.

Rovers have won four of their last five, and though they won their last trip to the Indodrill, that was just one of three victories on the road this term. Alloa to get that home win at 16/5, maybe?

St Mirren host Queen of the South with each side winning just one of their last four, and with six of Queen’s last seven and five of Saints’ last six seeing two or fewer goals, the under 2.5 at 8/13 looks assured.

Dumbarton have won two of their last three, but only Hibernian and Rangers have defeated Falkirk this season, and the Bairns are 3/4 to claim three points.

Ladbrokes League 1

In three meetings with Dunfermline, Ayr have won one and lost the other two by single goal margins, so the 5/6 on United +1 could be popular.

Peterhead look well priced at 7/10 to win at a Stenhousemuir side who have claimed just one point from four games, while the 8/11 on Brechin and Draw double chance at Airdrie could be shrewd too with City winning their last two.

Albion have drawn their last three, but with just one home win in six, they’re up against it with Stranraer losing only two of their previous 11. The visitors are 2/1 to claim another win at Cliftonhill, having done so just last month.

Forfar could be set for a rare win then whey host a Cowdenbeath side which has conceded 42 times en route to 10 defeats on the road this term. The Loons are 21/20 for victory.

Ladbrokes League 2

League leaders Elgin face a test when they head to Barry Ferguson’s Clyde, and after failing to win any of their last three away games, the hosts could be the pick at 5/4.

That could hand East Fife the chance to return to the top, and though Annan have lost just one of their last six, the Fifers are 17/20 for a fifth-straight home win.

Having lost just two of their last 15, Queen’s Park are 17/20 to win at Montrose, but the Gable Endies have proven a match for anyone on home soil and are 15/8 Draw No Bet.

After two points from seven games, Arbroath host an East Stirling side with one win in six. A draw is 10/3.

Berwick are in great form, and are unbeaten in five at home, making them the choice at 6/4 for the visit of an East Stirling side with three defeats in five.

All odds and markets correct as of the date of publishing.
