The Ladbrokes Championship and League 1 play-off semi-finals begin this evening, with the return matches on Saturday.
Finals are scheduled for May 17 and 20, with the team who occupied the highest league position at the end of the season at home in the second leg.
Airdrieonians v Alloa Athletic – Championship semi-final, 1st leg
Alloa, who drew most games in League 1, finished 10 points ahead of the Diamonds despite losing their final game of the season 3-2 at Peterhead. Airdrie sealed their play-off place by beating Queen's Park 3-2 to finish third. They have the division's top scorer in Andy Ryan but have the worst defensive record. The four meetings between the teams this season have produced two wins apiece.
Brechin City v Raith Rovers – Championship semi-final, 1st leg
Darren Dods' side drew 1-1 at Stenhousemuir on Saturday to finish fourth in League 1, four points clear of both East Fife and Queen's Park. John Hughes’ men beat Ayr United 2-1 at Stark's Park but an inferior goal difference to Dumbarton and St Mirren means they ended up in the relegation play-off place. The sides haven't met since April 2009 when Rovers won 2-0 at Stark's Park
Annan Athletic v Forfar Athletic – League 1 semi-final, 1st leg
Annan denied Forfar the League 2 title with a 4-2 win at Station Park on Saturday, as Arbroath took the trophy, and have a strong home record this season. Forfar have done well overall on their travels and triumphed 2-1 at Galabank in January but return south having won just two of their last 13 matches. Annan must be due a draw soon - they haven't had one since October.
Montrose v Peterhead – League 1 semi-final, 1st leg
Montrose were bottom of League 2 in December but an excellent second half of the season saw Stewart Petrie's men pip Elgin City for fourth spot on the final day thanks to a 1-1 draw with Clyde. Peterhead were only 10 minutes away from being relegated from League 1 until Jordon Brown scored to secure a 3-2 victory over Alloa that sent Stenhousemuir down. The last meeting of the teams was a Challenge Cup tie at Links Park in July 2014, which the Blue Toon won 3-0.
