Welcome back to the weekly Scottish Selections email after the summer break. I’m always a little cagey at the start of a new season. In the scottish lower leagues there’s a lot of movement of players and tons of loan signings. I know a few of the people that run the clubs in the 2nd and 3rd divisions so I talk to them but results can be eratic in the first few games. My systems are heavy on statistics too and it takes a few weeks before I have enough data to be confident. For the first few weeks it’ll be question of 1star bets going on what my spies report but when the stats bed in, it’ll be full steam ahead and I’m very confident of another highly profitable campaign. I’ve been betting on the Scottish lower leagues since 2002 and every season’s been a winner!

This week:

SD1 Ross County WIN @ 6/4 (vs. Falkirk) – 1 star bet (Bet365, Paddy Power)


Ross County vs. Falkirk

Last season’s cup run showed Ross County to be a team going places and a good start to the new campaign last week thumping new boys Cowdenbeath 2-0. They’ll be a team to follow this season, they have an excellent management team and I expect them to be challenging for the title come the end of the season. They take on Falkirk who continued miserable SPL form by losing to Dumbarton at home last week and look out of sorts still coming to terms with SD1. It’s often the case that it takes a while for the SPL relegation team to settle and Ross County can take advantage of this at 6/4.

1pt Southend to beat Leicester in League one, 11/5 B365 or 21/10 Blue Square (Best price Betfair) (Saturday 18th April 3pm ko)

Southend are one of the most in form teams in the country at the moment with four wins from their last five and twelve wins from their last sixteen. This fantastic run has taken them to within touching distance of the play offs. A win against Leicester tomorrow and other results going their way, could see the Shrimpers just two points from a playoff spot by tea time. They had a poor spell mid way through the season but this was the result of a crippling injury list. They have a strong squad to choose from now and have benefited from a couple of useful loan signings. Dorian Dervite has come in from Tottenham and struck up a strong partnership with Peter Clarke at the back. Their first thirteen games together resulted in ten wins and seven clean sheets. At the other end of the pitch, Theo Robinson has had a big impact since arriving on loan from Watford, scoring seven times. With Francis Laurent, Lee Barnard and Dougie Freedman also fighting for places, manager Steve Tilson has a wealth of options in attack.

Leicester can achieve promotion tomorrow with just a draw but they have been far from convincing in recent weeks. They picked up six points over Easter but laboured away at bottom club Hereford and needed a 90th minute winner to beat Leeds. Before that, Leicester had one just two of their last eight failing to beat other promotion hopefuls MK Dons, Peterborough and Tranmere along the way. There is every chance that the weight of expectation could be getting to them.

Southend boss Steve Tilson was in confident mood before the game and keen to spoil the party:

“There is nothing worse than watching another side celebrate on your own patch and hopefully that won’t happen”.
Southend have beaten promotion challengers Peterborough and Scunthorpe during their charge to the play offs, and look a value price at over 2/1 to repeat the trick in front of a bumper home crowd. Failure to take all three points could all but end their play off dream.
Minimum price to take – 9/5

1pt Oldham to beat Hereford in League one, 23/20 William Hill or 11/10 widely available (6/5 available on Ladbrokes shop coupons) (Saturday 17th January 3pm ko)

Oldham’s ten game unbeaten run has taken them up to third in the table, twenty eight points ahead of second bottom Hereford. The Lactics are well placed for a serious promotion push and have made a very shrewd loan signing from Hull, in Dean Windass. Although a veteran now, Windass scored the goal that won Hull promotion to the Premiership and he still has plenty to offer against league one opposition. His experience should prove invaluable in what is an already decent side. Top scorer Lee Hughes is in good form with five goals in his last six games and the likes of Taylor, Liddell and Whittaker are all goal threats too. John Sheridan’s men have not been beaten on the road since October and will fancy their chances against one of the weakest sides in the division.

Hereford have not played a competitive game for twenty days after several postponements and will be struggling for match sharpness. They finished 2008 in a poor run of form with just one win from eight games. The Bulls are the lowest scorers in the league with just seventeen goals scored in twenty three games. I tipped them for relegation at the start of the season and I have seen nothing to change my mind since then. They lie six points adrift of safety and have a mountain to climb. With no money to spend, Graham Turner has been trying to bring in loan signings but has struggled to attract any real quality. Oldham beat Hereford 4-0 at Boundary park earlier in the season and I make them odds on shots to do the double.

Minimum price to take – Evens
