A frightened moll wows

Another weekend, another SPL super six. Here's the last minute predictions:

The Bottom Six


St Johnstone v Aberdeen
Great to see the bottom six still getting live TV coverage at this stage in the season. Strange that ESPN are broadcasting the only one game that has absolutely no consequence in the relegation battle though. Home win.

Falkirk v Hamilton
Hamilton will be delighted to have got past the difficult second season syndrome while Falkirk are still scrambling for points and safety. The fixture list has come down in their favour but Falkirk still need to take advantage of that. Draw.

St Mirren v Kilmarnock
Big game this. I'm edging towards St Mirren going down but I'd not bet my house on it. Not even a doll's house. Neither of these sides seem capable of building up any momentum as they struggle to haul themselves clear of the mess. Draw.

The Top Six


Hearts v Motherwell
Both sides are still going for fourth place and a European trip. And both will have targetted this as a game to pick up points. For that reason I'd predict a scoring draw.

Dundee United v Celtic
I think second place is probably out of United's reach now. Given Celtic's season that is a rather depressing thought. They've certainly enjoyed a good season though and will be hopeful of halting Neil Lennon's (still rickety) bandwagon. Home win.

Hibernian v Rangers
The champions will retain their crown in this one. Away win.

The Prediction Totalizer: A confidence boosting four from six last week contributes to a confidence sapping 64 from 153.
