Kick-offs 3pm Saturday

Albion Rovers can deepen East Fife’s recent gloom and boost their chances of a shock playoff spot in Ladbrokes League One.

Coatbridge’s finest have once again punched above their weight this season with Darren Young doing a splendid job and they will fancy their chances of defeating an injury-ravaged Methil side.

Rovers defeated Fife less than a month ago at Cliftonhill and Barry Smith’s men have been depleted by injuries since then.

Key players Jonathan Page, Scott Robinson and Kyle Wilkie are out, contributing to a run of four defeats in six, including a loss at bottom side Stenhousemuir.

In-form Montrose have flown under the radar in their surprise bid to reach the Ladbrokes League Two playoffs and they can triumph at struggling Berwick.

Boss Stewart Petrie has done a stunning job at the Angus side, who required a playoff win against Brora Rangers to stay in the league two years ago.

Petrie said after their excellent success against leaders Forfar that they were targeting the playoffs and, with four wins in five, they have nothing to fear.

They travel to Shielfield to face a Berwick side who are in serious danger of finishing bottom.

Berwick have won just once in seven while rivals Cowdenbeath, Clyde and Edinburgh City have all been picking up big results recently.

Boss John Coughlin admitted it would be a “disaster” if they finished bottom but they face a battle to maintain their status as the only English side in the Scottish League.

Dumbarton are worth chancing against a Queen of the South side with zero to play for.

Stevie Aitken’s men are in a huge dogfight to avoid relegation from the Ladbrokes Championship but they have a habit of digging out big results when it matters.

South are safe but can’t reach the playoffs and their display at Hibs last week had an end-of-season look to it.

The Sons pose a goal threat with Christian Nade up front and are a nice price to win in Dumfries.
