Celtic travel to face Alloa in a huge Scottish Cup mismatch this weekend as they seek to avoid a major upset.
Scottish League One side Alloa are fighting for their life in the third tier of the football pyramid and have failed to win any of their last nine league outings.
Their last win was a 5-0 triumph over Lowland League side Bonnyrigg Rose in November to reach the Scottish Cup fourth round where they pulled a rabbit out of the hat.
Cup matches against Celtic are always a sensation, and this one is no exception. Alloa’s small 3,000 capacity ground will be packed after owner Mike Mulraney ruled out the prospect of moving the game to a larger stadium.
As if the encounter needed some extra spice, Rangers icon Barry Ferguson is Alloa’s manager and will be even more determined to upset the odds.

Our prediction: Alloa v Celtic
Celtic won’t come into this one with a full-strength XI, but they’ll still have more than enough quality to get the job done here.
Everyone knows it would only go one way on paper, but as the old saying goes, “Football isn’t played on paper, it’s played on the pitch.” There are no guaranteed results in football.
Our prediction: Alloa 0-3 Celtic (5/1 at bet365)
