Rangers have lost just one game in Division 3 so far and that came against Stirling Albion at Forthbank Stadium at the start of October.
Amazingly, it was one of only two league games the Binos have won all season.
On that day, Albion’s manager Greig McDonald wasn’t even in attendance because he was getting married and his side went into the match on the back of five straight defeats, but they raised their game and pulled off one of the greatest results in their recent history.
Since then, though, McDonald’s side have reverted back to their woeful worst. They haven’t won a single match in the league since, picking up just one point in their last five games, conceding 11 goals in their last three and losing their last four on the bounce, including a 1-0 home defeat to non-league Deveronvale in the Scottish Cup.
They sit rock bottom of the league with just seven points, five adrift of East Stirling and 17 behind league leaders, and Saturday’s opponents, Rangers.
In contrast to Stirling, Rangers have won every one of their four league games since the defeat at Forthbank, keeping three clean sheets and scoring 12 goals.
And to add to the unlikelihood of Stirling repeating their October heroics, Ally McCoist’s side have a 100% record in the league at Ibrox, winning all five games there, scoring 18 goals and conceding just three.
Strikers Lee McCulloch and Andy Little have scored just three goals less between them than Stirling’s entire team have managed all season, so it really is a case of David v Goliath on Saturday.
Unlike the biblical tale, though, David won’t be winning this time.
Rangers can expect to have one of their easiest games of the season and will also hope to inflict a heavy defeat as revenge for October’s embarrassment.
With all this in mind, odds of 9/4 on five or more goals in the game seem almost too good to be true.
