By Bear Able


LEAGUE1-Torquay v HARTLEPOOL 6/4- Hartlepool in sixth place are in fine
fettle undefeated in the last six games with two draws away from home
and four wins which included a fine 5-1 at Wrexham. Scored another
fivesome this time without reply at home to Milton Dons last week so
the visit to Torquay currently 19th and with one single win, and five
defeats from their last nine games appear to have nothing to offer
United by way of any serious challenge this weekend.

LEAGUE2-Cambridge v CHESTER 9/5- Neither club are in fine fettle at the
moment, 24th-placed Cambridge not having won a match since November
have had a miserable six defeats and two draws from their last eight
games whereas 19th placed Chester have had twice as many draws than
losses over the same period but seemed to pick a little with a 2-1 win
away to Macclesfield (10th place) before a single goal defeat to
Lincoln (9th place) at home interrupted their recovery hopes. Still
these two results against far loftier opposition does seem to indicate
recovery signs are visible down Chester way.

SPL Dundee v INVERNESS CT 9/5-Caley looking to consolidate their
relegation dodging 9th in the SPL take a trip across the country to
bottom club Dundee secure in the knowledge that last weeks defeat at
home to Kilmarnock was perhaps a mere blip in an otherwise fine
undefeated run which included draws versus more loftier opposition such
as Hearts, Aberdeen, and Rangers as well as a win away at Motherwell.

SPL-Livingstone v HIBERNIAN 11/10- Only Rangers and Celtic have managed
to take all three points from Scotland’s current “Third Force” in a
remarkable run of nine games which included six wins and one single
draw. They visit relegation zone Livingstone who have only recorded two
wins from their past eleven games so are hardly likely to provide any
serious challenge to the more rampant Hibernian.
