The End Of Season Play Offs 2018

Recommended Posts

Update on Scottish Playoffs

Premier League

Dundee United 2-1 Dunfermline Athletic (Utd win 2-1 on agg)

Dundee United v Livingston, winner over 2 legs plays 11th in Premier.

Championship

Dumbarton 1-1 Arbroath (Dumbarton win 3-2 on agg)

Raith Rovers 1-2 Alloa Athletic (Alloa win 4-1 on agg)

Final - Dumbarton v Alloa Athletic

Dumbarton keep on fighting for their Championship status. Raith Rovers will be seething having had the chance to clinch promotion on the final day. Goody's Wasps keep on going thanks to Kirky and Stewart (ST)

League One

Peterhead 3-0 Stirling Albion (Peterhead win 4-0 on agg)

Queen's Park 1-2 Stenhousemuir (Stenny win 3-2 on agg)

Queen's Park have been relegated. Peterhead came close to the title but promotion is still possible, half the job is done.

League Two

Cove Rangers 0-0 Cowdenbeath (First Leg)

All to play for.

Lowland League

Threave Rovers 0-4 Kelty Hearts (First Leg)

Dreadful 2nd half from Threave as it was 0-0 at Half Time. Looks like the East of Scotland side will gain promotion and replace the totally shite Hawick Royal Albert (I'm guessing so anyway, f**k knows)

It would be a shame to see Dumbarton go down, they've fought hard for years and have been an example to other part time clubs of how to succeed at a higher level.

I reckon Alloa Athletic will take the Championship spot beating Dumbarton in the final. Peterhead to beat Stenny in the final to gain promotion. I reckon Cowdenbeath will keep their L2 spot and beat Cove.

 

Not bad so far...

I've had a look at Kelty Hearts' twitter and it does indeed look like straight promotion should/when they finish the job against Threave. Which will mean Hawick Royal Albert will get relegated to East/South of Scotland tier.

It's good to see more of a pyramid in the Lowland League system. Perhaps the Highland League should look at further divisions? Fort William need a f**king boot up the backside.

Done some more lower league research. Kelty finished the season with a record of 23-0-1. One team finished 2Pts behind with a record of 22-1-1, that team being familiar to Saints - Lothian Thistle Hutchinson Vale. LTHV crucially drew on the 14th April, a 5-5 scoreline with 4th placed Leith Athletic. LTHV lead 3-0, 4-2 and 5-3 during that match. It began a gruelling end of season schedule where Lothian would win all 5 matches afterwards and take it to a final match against Kelty. Kelty won 3-1 to seal the title. Preston Athletic, the first club to be relegated from the Lowland League, finished 3rd but miles adrift of the top 2.

In a less exciting finish in the South, Threave Rovers won the league by 7pts above Mid Annandale.

Kelty have a good set up.  I went over there to watch our young guys play Dunfermline young guys.  Artificial pitch. Wouldn't bet against them.

A shambles that Dundee United are playing again tonight, 3 days after beating Dunfermline.

Players will be tired, possibly carrying injuries, totally wrong and all in favour of the top league team as far as I see it. 

Hope United win although they are so inconsistent it could go any way.

In fairness if a team finishes 3rd/4th in a 10 team league then their route to glory should be a lot harder than that of 2nd place. I'm glad the winner has been forced to play so quickly after. It means that should United get past Livi and then the SPL side, they've had to damn well earn it after a regular season where others were better.

In fairness you say (correctly) it's in favour of the Premier League side, but 11th used to mean safety. Now they have to fight for their place.

Watching this tonight’s BT1

No love for either team, but would prefer United to get pumped.

BT? Decent, that's my night sorted! Hope Livi progress, 2nd place finish deserves the playoff final over 3rd/4th and they've been surprisingly good this season for a side who just gained promotion.

Want United to win and hopefully pump Hamilton accies in the Final . That would take two shite supports out of the equation next year . Never had any great love for Ferranti thistle and I detest Hamilton’s shite ground with their even shitier playing surface .

Wouldn't have phrased it that way but my hope would be that United go up and both Hamilton and Ross County come down. Might be a case of careful what you wish for though as the pressure in the top league would possibly be higher but so would attendances.

Glad I decided not to travel to watch this one. Watching on TV at the local pub. Very scrappy. High speed. High intensity. Watched these two play each other at Livingston a few months ago and the game then was of higher quality. In fairness to both there is a lot riding on these games.

This is brilliant. 2-3 and kicking seven colours of shite out of each other, while Jack Ross looks on, holding a BT Sport microphone in one hand, puffing on a cigar in the other, before taking a break to check the snooker final and polishing the buttons on his stylish cardigan.

Ten minutes ago Livi looked dead what turnaround, United look tired

It's this stage of the match Livi need to (and have) hit Utd hard. As I said earlier (somewhere) I was glad the 3rd/4th winner barely had recovery time before this match, 2nd place deserves the advantage going into this match. They should do similar with the L1/L2 playoffs IMO instead of giving 4th placed finishers an equal chance of promotion.
