Weekend four to watch

Friday 11th August 2017

There’s another big weekend of football coming up in the SPFL - here are four games to look out for across the Ladbrokes Premiership, Championship, League 1 and League 2.

Ladbrokes Premiership - Rangers v Hibernian
There's an intriguing game in store at Ibrox between two sides who have made good starts to the season. Rangers beat Motherwell 2-1 at Fir Park on Sunday then hit Dunfermline for six in the Betfred Cup while Hibs saw off Partick Thistle 3-1 at Easter Road and followed it up with a 5-0 hammering of Ayr United in midweek.

Ladbrokes Championship - Morton v St Mirren
There will be a big crowd at Cappielow for the first Renfrewshire derby of the season. Saints make the short journey to Greenock on the back of a 3-1 win over Falkirk last weekend while Morton drew 0-0 at Dumbarton. Jack Ross' men racked up a 4-1 win on their last visit on a Tuesday night in April.

Ladbrokes League 1 - Ayr United v Forfar Athletic
Ayr suffered their first setback of the season in midweek when they lost to Hibernian in the Betfred Cup but they thumped Albion Rovers 5-1 at Cliftonhill in their League 1 opener. Forfar, promoted via the play-offs, beat Airdrie at Station Park last week but face a tough test at Somerset Park.

Ladbrokes League 2 - Stirling Albion v Berwick Rangers
Both teams enjoyed impressive wins on the opening day - the Binos hit back to beat Stenhousemuir 3-2 at Ochilview and Berwick also came from behind as they defeated Clyde 3-1 at Shielfield. The two meetings at Forthbank last season both ended in draws - 0-0 in October and 2-2 in February.
