In-form forwards boost Peterhead's chances at Stenhousemuir

Dundee United also worth backing

Paul Hartley is struggling to get a tune out of his Falkirk squad

Kick-offs 3pm Saturday

Peterhead have been in superb scoring form and there's no reason why they can't keep their run going at Stenhousemuir.

The Blue Toon have been motoring in Ladbrokes League Two after netting an incredible 13 goals in their last two games against Montrose and Elgin City, who had both being going well.

Anything evens and above for Jim McInally's men is more than acceptable and those odds are available for their trip to Ochilview.

They have won nine of their last ten games in league and cup action, although the blot on that record came against Stenny at Balmoor Stadium in November.

Peterhead will be desperate to avenge that shock loss and with players such as Rory McAllister, Mason Robertson and Jamie Stevenson in good form, they can win again.

Queen's Park have significantly improved and they will relish the chance of beating Stranraer at Hampden.

The Wigtownshire outfit have been struggling with severe financial problems, which has seen them lose four key players.

They were exposed at home in midweek when Ayr thrashed them 5-1 at Stair Park and youngsters have been drafted into Stevie Farrell's side, who have lost three in a row.

In contrast, the Glasgow amateurs are unbeaten in four games and have found their scoring boots.

Gus MacPherson's men should take advantage of Stranraer's struggles and ease their relegation fears.

Dundee United can continue their promotion charge with a win at Falkirk.

Falkirk hit the headlines this week for the wrong reasons when some of their fans threw plastic eyeballs at Dunfermline striker Dean Shiels - the former Arsenal and Rangers man plays with a false eye after a childhood accident.

That distasteful episode aside, Falkirk continue to struggle under Paul Hartley, who is trying to make wholesale changes to an underachieving squad.

There was little sign they had blended during that midweek defeat at Dunfermline and United were clinically dismantling doomed Brechin at the same time.

Csaba Laszlo's side have plenty of quality throughout their squad and should have enough to win the three points and keep on the tails of Ladbrokes Championship leaders St Mirren.
