Rangers visit Annan Athletic’s Galabank Park for the first time in their history on Saturday as they look to pick up their first away victory since they were accepted into Division 3 in July.
Draws at Peterhead and Berwick have left gaffer Ally McCoist scratching his head, but Saturday’s trip to Dumfries and Galloway should present the Light Blues with their first three points on the road.
Annan’s inability to score early on has led to the Galabankies trailing at half time in three of their four league matches so far, while the Ibrox men have led at the same stage in all of their Division 3 games until now
Slow starters Annan have lost four of their opening seven games, winning just once in the league and failing to find the net in the first-half of any of their games so far.
This inability to score early on has led to the Galabankies trailing at half time in three of their four league matches so far, while the Ibrox men have led at the same stage in all of their Division 3 games until now. For this reason, backing Rangers to be ahead at half time at 11/25 looks like a decent way to make a moderate profit.
And if you want to increase the odds slightly and improve your potential winnings, taking Rangers to be winning at both half time and full time is available at odds of 1/2.
Given that Rangers have scored eight goals in their last two games and taking Annan’s mediocre start to the campaign into account, this bet looks fairly foolproof.

Rangers are yet to keep a clean sheet in any of their league games so far and bwin are offering odds of 3/4 on Annan breaching their shaky rearguard at any point during the 90 minutes on Saturday, while you will get odds of 83/100 on both teams scoring in the match.
In the 3-way betting market Rangers are 3/20 favourites to return to Govan with all three points, while Annan are 10/1 to claim a famous victory.
The visitors third consecutive away league draw is available at 23/4 and could attract quite a lot of interest, but playing it safe is likely to be the best way to see a return on your money.
Recommended Bet: Rangers at half time and full time @ 1/2.
