Weekend four to watch

Wednesday 13th September 2017

It's fixture round six in the SPFL this weekend - here are four games to look out for in the Ladbrokes Premiership, Championship, League 1 and League 2.

Hibernian v Motherwell - Ladbrokes Premiership
This looks like a tough one to call at Easter Road. Hibs marked their top-flight return with back-to-back wins over Partick Thistle and Rangers then lost to Hamilton Accies before drawing their last two games at Dundee and St Johnstone. In contrast, Motherwell lost their opening two fixtures then beat Ross County, Hearts and Kilmarnock on the spin at Fir Park. Can they keep their good run going when they head east to the capital?

Dunfermline Athletic v St Mirren - Ladbrokes Championship
It promises to be a cracker at East End Park as the top two in the Championship go head to head. Saints leapfrogged the Pars on Saturday thanks to a 4-2 home win over Inverness Caley Thistle as Allan Johnston's men surrendered a 2-0 half-time lead to lose 3-2 to Morton at Cappielow. Between them, St Mirren and Dunfermline have rattled in 29 goals in 10 league games this season. It doesn't look like being a 0-0 draw this weekend...

Queen's Park v Raith Rovers - Ladbrokes League 1
Raith Rovers drew their opening game 1-1 at Alloa but haven't put a foot wrong since, reeling off four straight wins to justify their tag as title favourites. Barry Smith's men opened up a four-point gap over rivals Ayr United by beating the Honest Men 2-1 at Stark's Park as Lewis Vaughan incredibly scored for the 10th game in a row. Queen's Park moved off the bottom with a 1-0 win at East Fife last time out and Gus MacPherson's men will be eyeing an upset at Hampden.

Montrose v Stirling Albion - Ladbrokes League 2
Stirling lost their 100% record when Clyde won 3-2 at Forthbank on Saturday but the Binos remain top of the table, a point clear of a Montrose side who preserved their unbeaten start thanks to a stoppage-time equaliser from Chris Templeman in a 1-1 draw at title favourites Peterhead. Dave Mackay's men won on their last visit to Links Park in March but Stewart Petrie's side came out on top in an IRN-BRU Cup tie at Forthbank last month.
