Kick-offs 3pm Saturday

Arbroath are on fire and they can take the sting out of the Wasps of Alloa with another win.

The Gayfield side have smashed home 11 goals in their last two games and face a side who have conceded eight in the same period. Yet 5-6 is available for Dick Campbell's men.

Alloa just missed out on reaching the Ladbrokes Championship in the playoffs last season and Arbroath won League Two.

Yet the Red Lichties find themselves better off this season with Jim Goodwin and Alloa having to go through something of a transition this term.

He has major worries over a leaky defence and Albion Rovers scored five against them last week at the Indodrill Stadium.

With Ryan McCord pulling the strings for Arbroath after five goals in two games, the Angus side should brush off the challenge of Alloa, even if most of their best work has come away from home this season.

In the game of the day in the Ladbrokes Championship, Dunfermline should underline their title credentials with a win against Dundee United at a fair price.

United got back on track last week with a battling win against Morton at Tannadice, but it's a different proposition going to East End Park this season.

The Pars are the shock leaders of the table and that has been due in no small part to their goal threat.

Kallum Higginbotham has been the playmaker and allowed the likes of former Rangers striker Nicky Clark and ex-Aberdeen hitman Declan McManus to run amok.

Even in their sole loss in the league, they still scored twice in a 3-2 defeat at Morton and they can put down a real marker with a win against United.

Annan Athletic can grab a crucial win against struggling Cowdenbeath at Galabank in Ladbrokes League Two.

Peter Murphy's men have had some hard luck stories this season. They ran leaders Stirling Albion close last week away from home and know already this is a vital game even at this stage of the season.

Cowdenbeath face another battle to stay in the league after last season's narrow escape and one solitary win in the league this term tells another depressing story for the Blue Brazil.
