PLAYERS TO WATCH
Graham Bayne (Inverness CT): The ex-Ross County forward has played very well this season, even though he hasnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t reached double figures in the goal tally. His work rate this season has been top notch and has scored some important goals, including a winner at Ibrox in October and 2 against Celtic at home in 2007. He scored a great header against Dundee Utd last weekend and he is aiming to end the season on a high. Currently has 8 goals this season, 4 of top scorer Craig Dargo.
Kasper Schmeichel (Falkirk): The Man City goalkeeper has enjoyed his 6 month loan spell at the Falkirk Stadium. The son of the famous Peter Schmeichel has enjoyed some good form during his short spell at the club and is very keen to extend his loan deal into next season. A great capture for John Hughes if he can keep him for next season as well.
