There are still plenty of predictions to get through before the big kick-off on Saturday, and we break into the top five now with http://www.hflhub.co.uk reporter Andy Skinner tipping Brora Rangers to record an improved finish.
5th Place: Brora Rangers
Last Season: Prediction: 1st Actual: 8th
P 34 W 17 D 4 L 13 GD 31 Pts 55
Post Season Positives:
An assured finish to the season, and a real sense that the squad are subscribing to what Davie Kirkwood is trying to achieve at Dudgeon Park.

I think they will progress to finish in the top five this season. 5th
