Annan could prove too athletic for Berwick

Ruthless Ross County can maintain their dominance

Annan Athletic should beat Berwick
1 of 1

From 3pm Saturday

Annan Athletic have started the season impressively and can make a successful border raid by winning at Berwick Rangers.

The Galabank outfit have flown under the radar in Ladbrokes League Two with Peterhead and Clyde expected to battle it out for the title.

But Peter Murphy's men have already shown they could be real contenders.

A visit to Shielfield Park shouldn't worry them, especially as they have already hammered Berwick 4-0 at home in the Befred Cup.

Annan have won their last three games, which included a demolition of Celtic Colts in the Challenge Cup and a comfortable win against relegated Queen's Park last week.

Berwick are undergoing plenty of chances on and off the pitch and this season they have managed to score a grand total of one goal in their eight games this term.

Tommy Muir and Aidan Smith have proved to be a decent partnership up front for Annan this season and they can team up to win in Northumberland this afternoon.

Ross County have given the impression they could be the team to beat in the Ladbrokes Championship and they can prove it by winning against Morton in Greenock.

Stuart Kettlewell was unable to prevent the Dingwall side being relegated last season, but they have used one of the highest budgets in the league to recruit well over the summer.

They have already won at Dunfermline, which will be no mean feat this season and last week they ran Hibs extremely close in the Betfred Cup, leading twice before losing 3-2 to a last-gasp goal.

They have added players with Premiership experience and look certain to be huge runners in the race to get back to the top flight.

Morton are no mugs and should hold their own, but a win at Cappielow would be a signal that County are the team to beat this year.

Livingston have had a turbulent week but are worth a stab at big odds to give new manager Gary Holt a winning start at St Mirren.

The West Lothian club parted company with player-manager Kenny Miller - who is now in talks with St Mirren to sign as a player - after just seven weeks because he wouldn't agree to hang up his boots.

But footballing-wise Livi have been decent this season and have held their own against Kilmarnock and Motherwell.

Fellow promoted side St Mirren were lamentable last week at Aberdeen as they struggled to pass the halfway line and it's hard to see how they can be such strong favourites.
