Scottish Football Tips | Willie Duncan’s NAP | 5th December 2015


WILLIE DUNCAN’S (@Willie_Duncan) biggest and best Scottish NAP landed last weekend. He’s back for more Scottish Cup fun this weekend.

East Kilbride v Stenhousemuir | Saturday 15.00

Did you make a fortune following Falkirk against Fraserburgh in the Scottish Cup last weekend? If you did, I've got another Scottish Cup cracker for you.

There's a third-round replay in East Kilbride as the Lowland League side take on League One side Stenhousemuir.

I don't know what happened to the home side at Ochilview last Saturday as they found themselves 2-0 down, but I bet that Brown Ferguson's side were relieved when veteran defender Stuart Malcolm grabbed a last-gasp equaliser to ensure that Stenny will get a second bite of the cherry this weekend.

I fully expect Stenny's relief from last weekend to turn into full-blown joy on Saturday afternoon because I think that Billy Ogilvie's side have blown their big chance to send shockwaves through Stenhousemuir.

The enormity of the task facing East Kilbride was perfectly underlined on Tuesday night when Cumbernauld Colts were mauled 6-0 by Stirling Albion.

The Colts are just one point behind East Kilbride in the Lowland League table, while Stirling Albion are sixth in League Two.

Stenhousemuir are fourth in League One with three very good sides ahead of them and, despite coming close to capitulation at Ochilview, I've got full belief that Stenny will batter the minnows in this weekend's replay.

Brown Ferguson's men have lost just one of their last seven matches – a narrow 1-0 defeat against Ayr United at Somerset Park, while East Kilbride have won just one of their last five outings.

The 8/11 (Bet365) quote for an away win may look skinny at first glance, but it is jam-packed with juicy value and I highly recommend that you sink your teeth in before Saturday because this price may well melt away before then.
