Our JPIMedia sports team looked at the permutations and gave their predictions on the upcoming month of football where league status of several clubs will be decided. Click here for a league table and form guide.

Even a Ross County side at 50% effort should still have enough to relegate Falkirk with a win or draw. Alloa have every chance of winning at Ayr so the loser of QotS/Partick will enter the play-offs which Montrose will win.
I think Falkirk - roared on by a big crowd - will beat Ross County 2-1, but it wont be enough for survival as Alloa will draw 1-1 at Ayr. Alloa to beat Raith in the play-off final.
Alloa will beat Ayr United at Somerset Park, rendering Falkirks result meaningless against Ross County. Patrick Thistle will avoid defeat at QoS and stay up but the Doonhammers will come through the play offs.
Ross Countys players will board their post season flight to Magaluf with a spring in their step after relegating Falkirk to League One with a win. Alloa can pull a victory out of the bag at Ayr with stalemate at Palmerston. QoS will beat Forfar in the play-off final, though.
Falkirk win over Ross County won't be enough to spare them. Alloa will get what they need against Ayr. Thistle will win at Palmerston to send Queen of the South into the play-offs where Forfar can upset both Raith and Queens.
Alloa have been so good at pulling off results when its mattered and fully expect them to get something against Ayr. Falkirk will win against Ross County but it wont be enough. Queen of the South will beat Raith in the play-off.
Think Falkirk will win over Ross County but can also see Alloa sneaking a draw. If they dont go down, Alloa should sneak a play-off win over Raith after extra-time or penalties - but itll be close.
