FC Edinburgh Preview – Can Edinburgh get lucky this time?

Overall results have been a mixed bag for Wednesday’s hosts, FC Edinburgh, as the home side have struggled for consistency since the start of this new season, winning four and losing four of their opening eight games in all competitions to date.

Interestingly, three of FC Edinburgh’s four wins have actually been achieved away from home with wins at Airdrie (in the League Cup), Kelty Hearts and Alloa Athletic, both of which were in League One but having lost three of their last four games on home soil, FC Edinburgh look to have their work cut out in this Challenge Cup tie.

Our betting suggestion:

Stranraer Preview – Can Stranraer hold their own?

League Two outfit, Stranraer, may feel fairly confident about their chances of nicking a result at Meadowbank Stadium on Wednesday night despite picking up just one win from their opening eight games of this new domestic season.

Stranraer finished bottom of Group H earlier in the season in the League Cup group stage after losing all four of their group games but their last two results have seen an improvement as Stranraer have picked up points in draws with Bonnyrigg Rose and Elgin City in League Two, and they also recorded a 2-1 win over FC Edinburgh on their previous visit to the nation’s capital.
