Premiership final weekend previews

It's the final weekend of the Ladbrokes Premiership season, with second place and the relegation issue still to be decided.

It's the final weekend of the Ladbrokes Premiership season, with second place and the relegation issue still to be decided.

Dundee v Partick Thistle - Saturday (3.00pm)
Thistle occupy the relegation play-off place and are set to face Livingston or Dundee United in the final as things stand. They are still at risk of being caught by bottom club Ross County, who are two points behind but with a better goal difference. The Jags have won just once since the end of January while Dundee are safe following their midweek victory in Dingwall.

Motherwell v Hamilton Academical - Saturday (3.00pm)
Accies all but secured their top-flight status despite losing to St Johnstone in midweek as they are three points and 13 goals ahead of Partick Thistle. Hamilton have been in the Premiership since beating Hibs in the play-offs in May 2014. Motherwell have a Scottish Cup final to look forward to and beat Partick Thistle 1-0 in midweek to stay seventh in the table.

St Johnstone v Ross County - Saturday (3.00pm)
Ross County must win at McDiarmid Park to have any chance of remaining in the top flight, where they have been since topping the First Division in 2011/12. The Staggies have won just twice since early November and went down 1-0 to Dundee on Tuesday. St Johnstone are finishing the season strongly, having posted back-to-back away victories against Motherwell and Hamilton Accies.

Celtic v Aberdeen - Sunday (Sky Sports, 12.30pm)
Brendan Rodgers' side will be presented with the trophy following the game after sealing their seventh title in a row last month. The Dons occupy second spot but need a win to be sure of staying there and have lost all three meetings with Celtic this season. They go into the match on the back of a 1-1 draw with Rangers while Celtic were held 0-0 by Kilmarnock in midweek.

Hibernian v Rangers - Sunday (BT Sport, kick-off 12.30pm)
Hibs are set to finish fourth in the table in their first season back in the top flight but Rangers have their sights set on runners-up spot. A draw would be enough to achieve that if Aberdeen lose to Celtic. If the Dons earn a draw in Glasgow then the Light Blues would need a win to overhaul them. Rangers triumphed at Easter Road in December but Hibs won both games at Ibrox.

Kilmarnock v Hearts - Sunday (12.30pm)
It's fifth against sixth at Rugby Park, where Hearts won 1-0 on their previous visit back in August. Craig Levein's men travel to Ayrshire on the back of a confidence-boosting victory in the Edinburgh derby but have won only four away games this season. Only Aberdeen have managed to get the better of Kilmarnock at Rugby Park since Hibs won there at the end of October.
