Stranraer visit Cappielow. With Stranraer in first place and Morton second, this is the League One match of the day. A Morton win will bring the Ton within a point of first place; a Stranraer win will leave Morton seven points adrift. Each has taken a win off the other so far this season. Stranraer are having an extremely solid season, alternating wins and draws, and at this point have to be favourites for promotion.
[Morton win 2 - 0. Goals by McManus and Russell. Morton are one point out.]
Tuesday saw the completion of the playoff round of the 2015 AFC Champions Cup. There have already been a couple of preliminary rounds, but this was the first one to include a Japanese club. Final score (after extra time): Kashiwa Reysol 3 - 2 Chonburi of Thailand. The group stage starts next week.
On Tuesday Berwick Rangers beat Spartans 1 - 0, ending the Lowland League champions' Scottish Cup run at six games. Scottish Junior Cup winners Hurlford United also went six games before bowing out. Berwick move on to the quarter-finals and their competition-leading seventh game.
On Thursday Celtic and Inter Milan played to a 3 - 3 draw.
Yesterday Rangers beat Raith Rovers. Can Rangers still win the Championship? There is a mathematical possibility, but Hearts would have to stumble. Hearts are on track to finish with about 99 points. The very best Rangers can do is 92.
