SATURDAY has a strange feel to it with Albania v Scotland catching most of my attention on a day when others will be focused on the lower leagues.

We have Nations League matches, international friendlies, English and Scottish lower-league games and even Irn-Bru Cup ties.

I have to admit I didn’t find it easy picking winners this weekend despite spending plenty of time studying games so play it with low stakes.

In England, I like Sunderland, Peterborough and Bury while my best bets in Scotland are Ayr and Berwick. I’ve put all five on a money back acca and hopefully, I’ll get four or five correct.

I’ve posted separate previews on Ayr v Morton and the Scotland game as well as some English tips. I’m backing injury-ravaged Scotland not to lose but it’s a tough test for an inexperienced and in many ways shadow side.

Most of my picks are reasoned on these posts. There are also some VIP tips – long shots – for members only.

My Super Single on Friday was a loser after Queen’s Park conceded two late goals to Connah’s Quay. I would have advised cover if I hadn’t been skelping everyone at pool down the golf club. The treble was beaten all ends up – one goal short in Holland and one Wales goal short.

Good luck to everyone with all of their Saturday tips and well done to all the winners on Friday.
