St Johnstone defence can silence Stephen Dobbie

Arbroath looking good under Dick Campbell

St Johnstone celebrate a goal
1 of 1

Matches from 3pm Saturday

St Johnstone know that if they can keep Queen of the South hotshot Stephen Dobbie quiet, they can claim a victory in the Betfred Cup.

The Perth Saints held Hibs to a draw last week and looked decent for much of the game.

Tony Watt scored his third goal of the season and there are signs that he could get his career back on track under Tommy Wright after well and truly losing his way in recent years following a variety of stop-start loan moves and ill-advised transfers.

Of course, the one major obstacle that stands in their way is ex-Crystal Palace, Swansea City and Blackpool veteran Dobbie.

Despite being 35 now, he has already reached double figures for the season. And he is South's undoubted star man.

But St Johnstone should have too much quality throughout the rest of the team and if the hosts managed to lose to a poor Dundee United side last week at Palmerston Park, Saints really should ease to the next round.

Edinburgh City can add to Stirling Albion's poor start to the season in Ladbrokes League Two with a home win at Ainslie Park.

The league's newest team have netted 11 goals at home in their last three home games, albeit two of those were against the truly horrific Albion Rovers.

They have Blair Henderson in good form and they were boosted by the return of Scott Shepherd as his strike partner.

Albion have been on a downward spiral for some time - they have won just once in their last 16 games spanning last season and this term - and have some key players out through injury such as prolific striker Darren Smith, Kevin Moon and Darren Barr.

James McDonaugh's side should be able to take advantage of struggling Stirling.

Arbroath are going great guns at the moment and can stun Dumbarton in Ladbrokes League One.

Wily old manager Dick Campbell has played down his side's promotion chances, but they've started terrifically well with four wins and a draw in their last five games.

The Red Lichties are full of confidence with Bobby Linn particularly in fine form and Montrose and Stranraer have been effortlessly swatted aside already this term in the league, not to mention an impressive 4-1 win against Ross County.

The Sons have yet to gel yet since their relegation from the Ladbrokes Championship and the Gayfield side look a great price to win at The Rock.
