EsssPeeeEllll predictions

After last night's abridged SPL predictions, here we are with the full card for today.

Allow me to dream for a moment: Today I would really like one of these games to be a cracker. We've been in an early season malaise. Not much happening, not much excitement.

Anyways. To business.

Falkirk v Kilmarnock
Eddie May be disappointed. Boom, boom. Not much to laugh about for Edward so far this season and chuckling Jim Jefferies will be hoping to add to the Falkirkian gloom this afternoon. But I'll go for a draw in this one despite myself.

Hearts v Hamilton
Hearts made it hard for Celtic last Sunday before making hard work of getting past Dunfermline on Wednesday. Hamilton have steadied after a bad start. It's a tricky one this. I'm going for another draw but honestly believe either side could nick what I expect to be a tight one.

Motherwell v Hibernian
Jim Gannon was interviewed for the Hibs job but lost out to John Hughes. The Hibee faithful might be pondering what might have been. On radio duty for Hibs' defeat at Hamilton, Gannon will seriously fancy his chances if the Leith greens turn up with their powder puff 4-3-3 formation. Home win.

St Johnstone v Dundee United
A Tay derby. St Johnstone felt hard done by at Easter Road last week before turning things round at the same venue on Tuesday. Craig Levein will be smarting from the loss of his unbeaten record at home to Motherwell. I'm edging towards an away win.

Ranger v Aberdeen
Am I alone in finding the always mentioned "volatile" history of this match entirely dull? Home win.

Including the early kick the scores on the board are: 9/25
