It’s the wee ‘Gers against the new ‘Gers as Ally McCoist’s Rangers continue their rehabilitation in Division Three and a sell-out crowd is on the cards as winless Berwick look to drag themselves up by the table by stunning their illustrious visitors at Shielfield.
The Light Blues remain unbeaten in all competitions but they haven’t exactly torn up trees on the road so far, drawing their opener at Peterhead and edging out both Brechin and Falkirk in tight cup-ties. Nevertheless, McCoist’s boys are starting to acclimatise to life in the lower echelons, realising that the Division Three isn’t packed with ‘fat amateurs’ and Stan James’ 1/6 favourites should comfortably collect three points in the Borders, at the expense of BetVictor’s 12/1 outsiders.
Ian Little’s team shipped three goals in the space of five minutes as they lost out 3-2 at Annan and that defensive vulnerability doesn’t bode well against a dangerous Rangers attack.
The ‘Gers can help themselves to a few goals then and at 11/10 via Paddy Power they’re worth backing in the handicaps, where they kick-off a couple of goals in arrears. More specifically, Skybet price a 3-0 away success at 7/1 but as Rangers haven’t been entirely water tight at the back, it could be that both teams find the net (4/5, William Hill), so a more enticing correct score flutter is bet365’s 11/1 for the visitors to romp to a 4-1 triumph.
Elsewhere, BetVictor post 13/10 against the match generating four or more goals and the same firm offer 8/11 about the first Light Blues strike arriving before the 27th minute. That opener meanwhile, simply has to be backed at 10/3 via Stan James to come from Andrew Little. The Rangers front man can’t stop scoring having struck six times already this term and with a hat trick in his last league outing, the 23 year-old is oozing confidence.
Andrew Little to score first – 10/3 (Stan James)
