I Clydebank v Dundee Kilbowie. Clydebank. (Ground 5 mins walk from Singer Station) Clydebank. who have shown how an ambitious small club can be run, deserve every success but might find Dundee a wee bit too strong for them.

0 Hamilton v Hibernian Douglas Park. Hamilton. (Ground is 15 mins away from Hamilton Bus station) Hamilton about to enter a slightly less exhausting few fixtures should not under-rate a Hibs team capable of beating anyone on their day.

0 Hearts v Hangers Tynecastle. Edinburgh. (Buses 33. 34. 35, 44). Rangers. at last look to be approaching something near form and even my calloused old heart is softening at the sight of Rangers playing Cooper and McMinn which at least looks like two wingers. DIVISION 1

0 St Mirren v Hangers Love Street. Paisley. (Ground a short walk from Gilmour Street station). A short trip ; for the ‘gers which, on current form
