Weekend preview in numbers

Thursday 7th December 2017

There’s another big weekend of football coming up across the SPFL – we look at some of the key numbers across the four divisions.

67 Hibernian will become the latest team to try to end Celtic's unbeaten domestic record, which now stands at 67 games. Neil Lennon's men came close at Parkhead at the end of September when it finished 2-2 but they were beaten 4-2 in the Betfred Cup semi-final. It promises to an intriguing encounter at Easter Road on Sunday and it's live on Sky Sports at 12.30pm.

3 There are just three points between sixth-placed Hearts and Ross County down in 11th place in a tightly-packed Ladbrokes Premiership. Hearts, who have drawn their last three games, host Motherwell at Tynecastle while the Staggies travel to Ibrox to face Rangers.

1 Dundee United have a one-point lead over St Mirren at the top of the Ladbrokes Championship. Csaba Laszlo's side are away to Morton, who are outside the top four only on goal difference, while Saints take on bottom club Brechin City at Glebe Park.

4 Dumbarton have put together a four-match unbeaten run in the Ladbrokes Championship to move nine points clear of a Falkirk side who occupy the relegation play-off place. The Sons beat St Mirren last week and this week host another promotion-chasing side in Livingston.

43 Ayr United are the leading scorers in the SPFL, having netted 43 goals in 15 Ladbrokes League 1 games. They have a three-point lead over Raith Rovers at the top of the table following a run of six straight league wins and welcome Queen's Park to Somerset Park on Saturday.

21 Peterhead striker Rory McAllister scored his 21st goal of the season across all competitions on Tuesday night as the Blue Toon beat Stirling Albion 1-0 at Forthbank to go top of Ladbrokes League 2 on goal difference. Jim McInally’s men take on Clyde at Balmoor on Saturday, with the Bully Wee having drawn four games in a row, while Montrose entertain Berwick Rangers at Links Park.
