League Two Play-off

Well this is the game we have all been waiting for. Well I have since the start of May anyway. We’re about to say goodbye to Brechin City as a Scottish football league side.

Ever since they somehow got into the Championship, they’ve been awful. Actually dreadful. They finished that season with like 4 points or something and after relegation to League One, they went straight down to League Two. They were lucky there was no play-off last season as they would have lost then too.

Kelty Hearts are one of the non-league sides who should be a league side. They’ve proven that for a couple of seasons with some great cup performances. Narrow 1 goal defeats to Dundee Utd and St Johnstone, draws with Airdrie and Peterhead show that they belong in the football league. We also saw with Cove Rangers that when they won promotion, they easily went straight up to League One and have just missed out on promotion to the Championship.

Kelty got to this game with a very impressive 6-1 aggregate win over Brora Rangers. Brora are another side who should be in the football league, and another side who would probably smash Brechin, but due to the silly way the Scots run their league it’s so hard for the good non-league sides to get promoted. Only one side has the opportunity each season.

I don’t think Kelty will pass up this opportunity and I’m expecting a home win, probably in the return leg as well. They also have a good manager who deserves a crack at league football. Barry Ferguson had a good playing career at Rangers and won around a million Premiership titles, so he could make a decent manager.

These two sides played in the League Cup back in November. Kelty won 2-0 at Brechin.

-1.25 is also OK to take.
