After the disappointment of the last couple of weeks I’ve decided to try a different approach for this weeks both teams to score treble. The stats have not been kind to me recently with the form clubs failing to find the target and teams who cant normally breach the oppositions defence have for some reason found their shooting boots.
We all know its not uncommon for results to be turned upside down as the season end approaches so perhaps looking at teams lower down the leagues and fighting for survival to find the goals for us this week is the way to go, with this in mind I am on the following three selections and looking for all six teams to find the net.

Dundee v Inverness CT
Although 14 points adrift at the foot of the table and staring relegation in the face Dundee are not giving up on top flight football and have looked a much changed side since new manager John Brown took the helm last month, a 2-2 draw against St. Johnstone and a very impressive 2-1 victory against 11th placed St Mirren, coming back from a goal down, give me the belief they are up for the fight and I think they will be going all out for another 3 points against Caley Thistle on Saturday.
The leagues second highest scorers Inverness played out a disappointing goalless draw in last weeks highland derby and I would be very surprised if they went two matches in a row without scoring after hitting the target 25 times on the road this season including 4 in a 4-1 victory the last time these sides met at Dens Park.
Greenock Morton v Falkirk
I’m sticking with two teams here who have served me well in previous btts selections. Table toppers Morton need a win to keep at least a two point advantage over Partick thistle who have two games in hand just now.
Morton have scored in all but two home games this season and face one of my last weeks selections Falkirk who never dissapointed by keeping up their incredible record of scoring in every single away match of this campaign, a record I am sure they would like to maintain through the last few weeks of the season.
Falkirk won the same fixture by 2 goals to 1 earlier in the season. Let’s hope the stats ring true here for more goals galore.
Stirling Albion v East Stirlingshire
The fourth and final Stirling derby of the season and without a doubt the most important of the lot with both sides sitting on 29 points and only 1 point above bottom side Clyde in the race for the unwanted title of “worst league team in Scotland”.
This seasons 3 previous derby matches have all finished with both teams scoring and East Stirlingshire hold the bragging rights with a 3-1 victory and two 1-1 draws.
Stirling Albion have scored in every match since the second week of the season while their rivals away form isn’t the best but have still managed to score in 5 straight away from home. You would need to go back to 2006 to find the last game between these sides where both teams have failed to score.
