As the weekend approaches, here are four games to look out for in the SPFL on Saturday.

Celtic v Inverness Caley Thistle - Ladbrokes Premiership
Celtic have won nine of their 10 Premiership matches this season - the only team to deny them full points were Richie Foran's men in a 2-2 draw in the Highland capital back in September. Can Caley Thistle do it again? They face a tough task against a team who have scored 17 goals in four home league games but Inverness are in the top six despite a slow start to the campaign.

Dunfermline Athletic v Raith Rovers - Ladbrokes Championship
It's derby day at East End Park as Dunfermline take on their Fife rivals. The Pars find themselves in eighth place, just one point above the relegation play-off, after last week's 2-2 draw at Dumbarton while Rovers are in third spot following recent wins against promotion rivals Falkirk and Queen of the South. Gary Locke's men triumphed 2-0 when the sides met at Stark's Park back in August.

Albion Rovers v Airdrieonians - Ladbrokes League 1
Mark Wilson - the youngest boss in the SPFL - takes charge of Airdrie for the first time against their local rivals at the Exsel Group Stadium. The Diamonds moved into the play-off places last weekend with a win at East Fife but Rovers are just two points behind them and came out on top at the Excelsior Stadium earlier this season.

Clyde v Elgin City - Ladbrokes League 2
It's third against second at Broadwood as Barry Ferguson's men bid to move level on points with Jim Weir's team. Elgin are only a point behind leaders Forfar and have been outstanding on the road this season, winning five games out of six, but Clyde beat them 2-0 at Borough Briggs in September. The Bully Wee drew 1-1 with Stirling Albion last weekend while City defeated Cowdenbeath 3-1.
